Team story

[p]UPDATE 16 May 2020 - Since writing the below our wingwalk has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are still fundraising as best we can, and we will update this page when we have a new date for the wingwalk, thanks so much to all who have supported us 🙏 xxx[/p][p]Since writing the below Sarah Macleod has joined the wingwalk (Go Sarah!) so now there are 3 (2 humans, one pig). Thanks so much Sarah for coming on board to help these amazing charities xxx...[/p][p]Karen's Story...[/p][p]...This wingwalk is in memory of my amazing Mum and is the last thing I promised her I’d do, to help people with dementia, and the animals. I’m Karen and Pigs really WILL fly as pilot Mike has given clearance for my Little Piggy mascot to wingwalk with us.[/p][p]We said goodbye to Mum in July 2016 – worst time ever, I’ll never forget that Sunday morning watching Hollyoaks (don’t judge 🙈) when my Brother phoned and said the time had come – the world fell apart, she’d had dementia for a while but I’d deluded myself that she still had years and years left to go.[/p][p]You know when people say goodbye in films? I never thought I could do that – bad enough at airport goodbyes… It’s amazing what we do when it’s all we can do though, and (I don’t know where it came from really) to the best Mum in the world I said I’ll do a wingwalk for dementia and the animals (she LOVED animals) – and she smiled so I like to I think she understood me.[/p][p]So, the wingwalk is booked along with my biggest target EVER which I just feel is right given it’s my last thing for Mum, and that it’s for 4 awesome charities. I really want to help these charities as much as I can (and smash the target to bits) so yeah, bring it on. YIKES, it's really happening 😱[/p][p]I'm paying for the wingwalk personally so that all funds raised will go to these charities:[/p][p]Aberdeen FC Community Trust Dementia Friendly Programmes[/p][p]Deeside Cats Protection[/p][p]Forget Me Not Dementia Club Banchory[/p][p]Halfpenny-Farm Animal Sanctuary near Rurie[/p][p]WWF Australia Emergency Bushfire Animals[/p][p]The charities are amazing, makes me emotional just thinking about what they do, tirelessly dedicated to helping so many - giving quality and purpose of life to people with dementia which is such a cruel illness; and saving animals who are abandoned, in danger, old or hurt and have no voice to ask for help and nowhere else to turn. Mum, I hope you approve up there 🦋[/p][p]So now all I need to ask is can you help us?[/p][p]If you can spare some cash for these worthy causes - thank you from the bottom of my heart 💖[/p][p]Or if sponsoring’s not your thing please can you share this with someone who might like to help, or a business looking for charities to support? 4 for the price of one right here 👌[/p][p]I will be eternally grateful if you can help in any way, and if you’re still here thank you for reading my story 🙏 xxx[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]PLEASE NOTE due to technical issues this page had to be restarted by Virgin Money Giving on 5 October 2019 - all online donations until then are below, and shown in the raised offline total before gift aid of £294.[/p][p]17-Sep-2019 [b]FIONA MORGAN - BRIG[/b][/p][p]Wishing you all the best with this brave challenge and doing it for very worthy charities.
