Ashley takes to the skies and conquers fear of heights for hospice

ASHLEY Johnson admits that he’s the sort of man who likes to keep his feet firmly on the ground.

But when he heard about a sponsored skydive in support of St Luke’s, the customer services administrator at Sheffield’s BMI Thornbury Hospital decided to take the leap into the unknown and conquer his fear of heights.

And he’s hoping that his skydiving debut will raise at least £1,000 for our patient services.

“I must be mad because heights really do terrify me,” said Ashley, who lives in Chapeltown.

“In the last few years, though, quite a few of my colleagues and family have been touched by St Luke’s and I thought it was time to do something in return.

“There’s no better way of beating a fear than knowing you’re helping people at the same time and that’s what this is all about.”

“And having had many friends and colleagues who have been helped by the wonderful team at St Luke’s, this is yet another reason I’m doing the Skydive.
