A woman who was the victim of sexual abuse from the age of six, has raised awareness and £455 for the National Association for People Abused in Childhood (NAPAC) through a sponsored skydive.

Susan Fish, 39, decided to speak out about the sexual abuse she suffered up until she was 12, in order to raise the profile of NAPAC. The charity has a free support line staffed by trained volunteers, and can provide details of nearby specialist counsellors and support groups.

“NAPAC are fantastic at what they do. They can also assist with court cases,” said Susan. Of her skydive from 16,000ft, she said: “It was brilliant - I absolutely loved it, and I’ll be doing it again.”

As well as more NAPAC fund-raisers, from June Susan will be volunteering at Grantham’s new rape crisis centre.

“It helps to talk to someone who has been through it,” she adds. “If anyone is suffering in silence there are people you can speak to.”

NAPAC’s support line, which is free on all landlines and mobiles, is 0808 801 0331
