Daredevil take to the skies for KEMP Hospice

Emily Pawson, a sixth form student at King Charles, took part in a Tandem Skydive for KEMP Hospice and has raised just under £500 for the charity. Said Emily: “I took part in the skydive as I wanted to give something back to my local charity. I wanted to gain some independence in raising as much money as I could for KEMP Hospice.” In less than 3 months Emily managed to raise just under £500 - a fantastic personal achievement, as well as completing a once in a life time personal challenge. The money Emily raised will help support KEMP’s Mason Road hospice to provide specialist care and support to patients, families and carers in the Wyre Forest, as well as surrounding areas in Shropshire and Worcestershire, who are dealing with life limiting illness and bereavement. The Hospice’s sole aim is to help patients maintain independence and provide assistance as they adapt to their changing abilities, enabling many to continue living their lives to the full, for as long as possible. Studying A-levels in English, Business Studies and Psychology at King Charles, Emily plans to go to University next September. Speaking about the skydive Emily added: “It made me push my fears aside and all for a great cause. It was such a life changing experience.”
