Despite being afraid of flying – Linden Homes West Yorkshire sales executive Gavin Hughes is heading for new heights to raise funds in support of a family friend.
Gavin, who is based at the Brompton Fold development at Apperley Bridge will be jumping 10,000 feet out of a plane to boost charity coffers for the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation.
He will be joining 26 friends and family members of Leeds toddler Ada (2) – the daughter of a friend who was born with a rage condition called biliary atresia, and inevitably leads to a liver transplant.
The sky dive takes place on 22 October, with Gavin hoping to raise £1,000 to support the cause.
Gavin (pictured), who has received support from his own son Liam, is approaching the challenge with slight caution!
He said: “I’m doing this sky dive for the best cause and my greatest inspiration, my friend’s little girl Ada, who was born with a rare condition Biliary Atresia. Whilst spending time in hospital with her and seeing the many children of all ages with this condition I have never been as humbled to see how strong and full of character these special little children are.
“So for this I was asked to join 26 other family members and friends and do a sponsored sky dive – despite me being terrified of flying!”
