cotswold-care-skydive-fundraiserCaroline Wilkes is overcoming her fear of heights to help Cotswold Care Hospice. The 31-year-old will do a 12,000ft tandem free fall sky dive in support of the charity on November 8th this year.

“I wanted to be an astronaut as a kid until I realised that feeling shaky whilst standing on a ladder didn't stand me in good stead for being rocketed into space,” she said. “So the skydive is a bit daunting."

Caroline, from Malmesbury in Wiltshire works as a bank health care assistant with Cotswold Care Hospice’s day hospice service. She describes the Hospice in Minchinhampton as a 'sanctuary for those who are in their greatest need'. “I’ve never been in a plane before,” she said. “After this I’ll be able to say that I’ve flown but never landed. Please help me raise this money for the Hospice’s incredible work.”

Every year Cotswold Care Hospice provides support and care for more than 600 people. All of its services are provided free of charge. The hospice supports adults 18 years old and over.

Caroline hopes to raise £400 with her skydive. You can make donations via the Do It For Charity Website - http://www.doitforcharity.com/CarolineWilkes or for further information you can call Caroline on 01666 311243.
