Hi All,

I am setting this fundraising page to help raise awareness and support for Young people with Epilepsy. As you are aware I have managed this condition since I was 11 years old and helping children manage their conditions, provide all the support they need, including parents, is so important.

Learning to manage this condition, develop the skills to then go on and manage your life, to then have the ability to lead as normal as a life as possible, doing things people take for granted, hence support at an early age really does help.

This support was very limited when I was growing up and just awareness on how to support people with their condition is just as important.

I have arranged for Heath to complete a 15000 m Skydive to raise funds for this amazing charity. I would like to raise at least £600, which will cover the balance of the dive costs which is £284. All other deposit, travel and accommodation costs I will cover myself. This also a surprise and gift to Heath for all of his support looking after me especially recently, times many of you do not know about or see, when I am too ill to look after myself. The level of care he has to provide is more than any of our friends and family know about.

Hence any funds over £284 will go to the charity.

Thankyou for any donation, small or large. Its an important cause to both Heath and I. It's an event he has wanted to go to and I think both cases deserve the day !!
