Skydive for the Trust
Stuart Dures reasons for skydiving for us
During the last year my wife has undergone treatment for breast cancer. This had a huge effect on our young children. The Osborne Trust are a small charity that helped us when we needed it. They sent our children to a meal at Frankie and Benny’s, a day out to Eureka, Chester Zoo, Zipp Forest. They sent the kids Ozzy, their elephant teddy for cuddles and comfort and a notebook to write down any thoughts and fears.
This gave the children something nice to look forward to and enjoy when mummy was at home poorly and gave my wife some time at home to recover and recuperate without having to put on a brave face all the time.
Now I want to repay the favour and raise money for the Osborne Trust by doing a skydive which is terrifying for someone who can barely watch the children walk down the stairs in front of me!!

Lucy Evans reasons for skydiving for us
My sister was diagnosed with Breast Cancer this year. Not only has it had a huge impact on her but her husband & children. The Osborne Trust support the children of parents going through cancer treatment & organise days out, trips, activities & treats for these children.
I can honestly say this charity is amazing & is currently supporting my sister’s family. I would love to do this skydive to raise as much money possible for this amazing cause & as a personal challenge which before my sister’s diagnosis I’d never even consider doing.
Please help me to fulfil my challenge & help these children facing the horrendous experience of seeing their parent/parents battling such a horrendous disease.
