Christina takes the plunge to help local charity
THRILL seeker Christina Lowe has jumped out of a perfectly good aeroplane at 15,000 feet to raise money for Barnstaple Childrenâ€™s Centres.
Christina 25, took to the skies for a tandem skydive at Honiton Airfield on behalf of the Action for Childrenâ€™s centres, where staff are fund raising to transform their gardens into places where all the family can enjoy the great outdoors.
â€œThe skydive was absolutely amazing and was definitely the best experience of my life,â€ said Christina, who lives in Exford and raised ï¿½350 through her jump.
â€œI wanted to do something for Action for Children and its centres in Barnstaple because of the fantastic work they do with children and their families.
I know the garden makeover is really important so Iâ€™m thrilled the money I raised will help provide an outdoor space that will be really special to families.â€
Action for Childrenâ€™s Helen Hallam, Manager of Barnstaple Area Childrenâ€™s Centre, added: â€œWe canâ€™t thank Christina enough for her incredible support. The money she has raised will help reach our target of ï¿½2,000 to give our families the special outdoor space they need to come together to learn and play.
â€œPlaying outside in the fresh air is an essential part of growing up, but many of the local children who come to our childrenâ€™s centres donâ€™t have access to a garden of their own.â€
