Zana takes plunge for liver char­ity

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

A BRAVE teenager has raised hun­dreds of pounds for a liver dis­ease char­ity by jump­ing out of a plane. Zana Beasley, 17, of Wash­ford Farm Road, has raised al­most £800 for the Chil­dren’s Liver Dis­ease Foun­da­tion through her latest stunt. Two years ago the High­worth pupil was di­ag­nosed with au­toim­mune liver dis­ease which means her body re­jects her liver. She said: “The jump was bril­liant. I was ner­vous but once you jump out, it’s so amaz­ing and sur­real. “I would like to thank the William Har­vey pub and Wilkin­son as well as my friends and fam­ily for spon­sor­ing me. Last year Zana held a cof­fee morn­ing which raised £300 for the char­ity, and this time round she was helped by her dad who shaved his head to rally spon­sor­ship. “Now I am try­ing to think of the next thing I can do,” she said.
