Congratulations to our colleague Kathy Lye.

Over the weekend, Kathy jumped 13,000 feet out of an aeroplane to raise funds for Age Cymru.

She raised over £300 with her tandem skydive.

Says Kathy, who is Age Cymru’s Engagement Support Co-ordinator:

“As anyone who knows me will know, I am REALLY scared of heights.

“This is why I thought it would be interesting to try and conquer that fear and raise money for a good cause at the same time.

“I am so glad I did the jump on Monday – it was very exhilarating, but I think it was probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

Kathy did her jump at Skydive Swansea with instructor Ricky Davies.

Commenting on Kathy’s achievement, Robert Taylor OBE - Age Cymru’s Chief Executive says:

“Well done Kathy.

“You’ve put up with ribbing from your colleagues, a cancelled jump due to the weather conditions a fortnight ago, and come through it all smiling.

“We’re all very proud of you.”

Kathy is still collecting donations for her tandem parachute jump – if you want to support her visit www.doitforcharity.com/KathyL
