Team story

[p][b]6 Sensational Wingnuts take to the Skies in August![/b][/p][p]For those of you who have already sponsored us - thank-you from the heart of our bottoms! OUr wing walk event has been delayed until 22nd August but that gives us more time to raise more funds. For those of you who are visiting this page for the first time, thanks for supporting us! We're so excited and absolutely petrified of the challenge that we've set ourselves in aid of such an incredible charity. We are a [b]sensational 6 fiesty girls (Steph, Paula, Gill, Kathryn, Lily, Elaine), who have been encouraged by the bonkers Lily Newman to overcome our fears and challenge ourselves to do something we've never done in 2015[/b]. Two of us hit the big 5-0 soon, so we're doing this to prove that middle age has not yet set in![/p][p]The most important reason we're doing this is to raise significant funds for Act4Africa. Lily helped Kathy and Martin Smedley to set up the charity 15 years ago and since then, they've delivered comprehensive [b]HIV and AIDS prevention education to nearly 1.5 million young Africans.[/b] [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]We have specifically chosen to raise money for an amazing legacy project to fund 'Kathy's Centre', a combined [span=text-decoration: underline;]women's refuge, early years education programme and health & education centre[/span] in Uganda [b]in memory of the gorgoeus Kathy who lost her own battle to cancer in 2014. [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][span=text-decoration: underline;]To fund the purchase of the land and the build of this project it will cost £30,000[/span] - we hope to raise a quarter of the cost through our bonkers wing walk.[/b][/p][p]Please dig deep and give generously and be glad you're not us standing on top of a bi-plane as our pilot practises his loop the loops! Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
