My story

[p]Hi Guys,[/p][p]Usually some friends and myself organise a charity ladies day to raise as much money as we can for charities that are very close to us. Due to commitments we haven't been able to do that this year so I have decided that I am going to take the plunge and do a Skydive. I will be supporting a local charity called You Raise Me up. This is a local charity who have shown support to my family and friends over recent years through unfortunate circumstances and I feel that if I can help raise funds for them to continue to support others then why not jump out of a plane to do it!![/p]Who are we?[p] The ‘You raise me up charity’ was founded by the late Jane Brooks and her husband Fraser in June 2011. The charity’s sole purpose is to raise funds to support families that have suffered the loss of a teenage child.[/p] Why?[p] On 3rd May 2011 Fraser and Jane’s beautiful daughter Megan Brooks collapsed and died suddenly. As parents of Megan they found themselves in desperate need of comfort from those that had experienced the same loss and to see how they had coped and got through such a terrible time.[/p][p] The aim of the charity is to be able to provide compassion, support and simply to be able to say “we totally understand” rather than “we cannot imagine what you are going through”.[/p][p] The financial strains that a funeral can put on those left behind can be of real concern as no parent wants to feel like they are ‘scrimping’ on their child’s send off. It is a real yet, sad fact that no parent should have to even consider saving and planning for the funeral of their child. Yet the cost of ensuring that you have the opportunity to give your child a beautiful and deserving service is something that no financial help, for a teenager of a certain age, is available for. The charity therefore aims to provide financial aid to help provide the funeral that child deserves.[/p][p]Please click on the link to find out more.....[/p][p]https://www.youraisemeup.co.uk/[/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read about the charity, And I would like to thank you your support in helping my fundraising possible. xxx[/p][p][br][/p]
