Join St Ives woman as one of 30 people skydiving to celebrate Milton's 30th anniversary

Mar 28, 2019

A young woman from St Ives will be among 30 thrill seekers jumping from a plane to celebrate the 30th anniversary of EACH in Milton.

Molly Wesley will be following in the footsteps of her dad, who has also done a skydive, as she jumps from around 13,000ft at Peterborough’s Sibson Airfield on Saturday, 3 August. She will fall at some 120mph, descending to 5,000ft in just 40 seconds, before her parachute opens and allows her to enjoy breathtaking views of the area.

“I’m taking part in the skydive as I’ve a massive place in my heart for charities and would like to help this amazing organisation that helps children and their families,” said Molly, a health care assistant at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, whose sister, Jade, 22, is also doing a skydive.

“I’ve taken part in a Macmillan coffee morning before, when I was at college, but this is the first time I’m raising money by myself.

“I’m very happy to be supporting EACH as, with my job, I also care for end of life patients and it’s a huge privilege to be caring for people in their last few days. I hope to one day work in a hospice, too.”

We still have some of its 30 skydiving places to fill. Those who sign up will receive a fundraising pack as well as tips and advice from the charity’s fundraisers.

Those wanting to get involved will have to put down a £50 deposit. A further payment of £165 will be required on the day. This can be made by the individual themselves or taken out of sponsorship money. In the latter case, EACH suggests people raise a minimum £350.

  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
