Heading for the heights with our brave skydivers

WHAT do you need to raise £5,000 towards our patient care? For six intrepid adventurers all it took was a head for heights!


Roseanna Newsam, James Slater-Purcell, Honey Longden, Corey Costello, Kimberley Checkley and Catherine Pashley all had one thing in common - a determination to support St Luke’s.


And by the time they had completed their tandem skydive challenge, they had raised a total of £5,000.


“Our tandem skydive event is always popular, but for this group the pandemic meant some of them had to wait a very long time before they could reach for the skies,” said our Events Coordinator Rachel Spofforth.


“We were delighted when lockdown restrictions were eased enough for them to be able to take the leap and between them they have raised a fantastic amount, which really will make a massive difference to the lives of our patients and their families.


“And for anybody who fancies doing the same, please do keep looking at our website for information about our next skydive in September.”
