Helen and Jack’s Skydive to Fundraise for Dawn House School

30th July 2021


Update from Dawn House School:

When Helen, a pupil’s mother, contacted Dawn House School to ask if we minded her doing a skydive for school, we jumped at the chance (excuse the pun). 
Helen said "Call me insane but my eldest son, Jack and I are going to do a skydive. We thought that if we are going to throw ourselves out of a plane that we may as well raise money to benefit Dawn House School! 
I’ve done a tandem jump before for charity (albeit 20 years ago) and it was exhilarating, so when Jack said he wanted to do it, I of course jumped up in excitement as I’ve wanted to do it again ever since. Plus I would be an awful mum if I didn’t jump with him in a show of solidarity!"
Weather permitting the brave pair will be jumping on the 23rd August. If you would like to pledge your support, please visit GoFundMe.
