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
