Our fearless consultant Ellis is all set to take a leap of faith and jump out of a plane on Saturday 11th July in aid of Whirlow Hall Farm.
Ellis is no stranger to flying and has taken many foreign holidays, but this will be the first time she has actively exited a plane mid flight! There’ll be no time for in-flight refreshments as Ellis will be harnessed to a professional skydiver who will take her on the flight of a lifetime.
“I’m on the countdown now to the jump, and my tactic for dealing with it is just to block it out. I’ve decided I’ll deal with it when I get on the plane – jumping for such a good cause and not letting down the people who sponsored me is my motivation to complete the challenge! And when I land, there’ll be a few celebratory drinks to celebrate my survival!”
Once Ellis back on solid ground her fundraising will go to Whirlow Hall Farm – a longstanding charity in Sheffield that provides interactive educational programmes for children from all backgrounds across the city who have perhaps never been exposed to farm experiences.
