A father will do a tandem skydive next month to raise money for a cancer charity which has supported his teenage son.
Paul Smith, of Corby Glen, is preparing to do the jump with his brother-in-law Mark Mumby, of Morton, on August 23 at Sibson airfield near Peterborough.
They are raising money for CLIC Sargent, a charity which supports children and young people with cancer. The charity has helped Paul, his wife Sara and their 19-year-old son Sam who was diagnosed with oral cancer.
Sara said: “CLIC Sargent have been absolutely invaluable. They have given a lot of support, financially, emotionally and it’s been ongoing. Tracey Biggs, a Young Person’s Social Worker from Clic Sargent, made contact with Sam soon after his diagnosis was confirmed and along with her colleague Rachael Ewing have been and still are an invaluable support to Sam and his family.”
Anybody who would like to make a donation in support of Paul and Mark’s skydive can go to www.justgiving.com/sara- smith20.
You can also sponsor them by picking up a sponsor sheet from Swinstead Road Garage in Corby Glen or call Sara on 07956 033841.
