Sponsorship Fundraising at 13,000 ft


As the Derby City Carer’s Centre team came together in April for the planning of Carers Week in June, I decided I was going to raise funds for DCA by taking part in a Sky Dive. I had to undergo a full day of training and pass an exam to be able to do the jump. The Sunday arrived with good weather and moral support from friends. It was an experience of a lifetime and I was happy to help raise funds for such a worthwhile charity. My sponsorship money came to over £650 and I would like to thank, colleagues, Carers and friends for sponsoring me. A big thank you to my instructors for making me feel at ease during the nervous flight prior to the jump and all the guys at Snibson Airfield who are all very welcoming. – Amran Ashraf – Carers Connect Worker, Ambassadors Co-ordinator, Derby Carers Centre.
