Braintree: Fundraiser to skydive for charity
4:00pm Monday 21st January 2013 in News
A skydiving fundraiser will jump from 10,000 feet in support of a charity that has helped her.
Jennie Wormull, 22, of Monkdowns Road, Coggeshall, will skydive over the Salisbury Plains on the 2nd March in aid of Sense, a charity that is very close to her heart.
Miss Wormull was born with Charge Syndrome, a condition that affects her visibility and hearing.
Sense has supported her over the years and is now helping her overcome the challenges of living independently.
She said: “I wanted to raise money for Sense because I think they are an amazing charity that helps deafblind children and their families get the most out of life.
“They have helped me to see that it is ok to need help sometimes.”
The national charity supports children and adults who are deafblind to reach their potential and maintain their independence.
Miss Wormull will jump alongside another Sense Volunteer, Stacey Smart, 22, from Plymouth. Together they hope to raise £1000.
