Sunrise, skydives and survival instinct
TWO SENIOR figures at a Beaconsfield-based care home will be climbing 10,000 feet before jumping out of a plane as they seek to raise over £5,000 for charity.
Sunrise Senior Living’s managing director Amanda Scott and head of food and nutrition Sophie Murray are hoping to raise money for The Food Chain and Alzheimer’s Society.
The dynamic duo from the Post Office Lane based home will join four other brave volunteers as part of the skydive on October 8, organised by the National Association of Care Caterers.
The Food Chain exists to ensure people living with HIV in London can access the nutrition they need to get well, stay well and lead healthy, independent lives.
The Alzheimer’s Society, long supported by Sunrise communities throughout the UK, is the country’s leading research and support body for dementia.
Amanda said: “I like a challenge but it will definitely be daunting to be doing this skydive – albeit for incredibly important causes.
“Hopefully we can raise some great money for these two fantastic organisations.”
Sophie said: “It is going to be incredibly scary being on that plane up – those moments just before the jump will be petrifying.
“However I am proud to be involved. I’m hoping that my survival instincts – and the parachute – kick in at just the right time.”
