Ex­cited about tan­dem sky­dive

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

An Ash­ford woman will be throw­ing her­self out of an aero­plane this week­end to raise money for Pil­grims Hos­pice.

Emma Joyce, 21, from Rep­ton Park, said she was ex­cited about her firstever sky­dive at Head­corn aero­drome.

The coun­cil worker will be tak­ing part in the tan­dem jump this Satur­day, fall­ing a cool 12,000 feet.

She said: “Noth­ing ex­cites me more than do­ing some­thing I have al­ways wanted to do whilst rais­ing money for such a bril­liant char­ity. I have fam­ily and friends whose loved ones have been at the hos­pice in their fi­nal days and I have heard noth­ing but praise for the sup­port they have pro­vided.

“So when the op­por­tu­nity came about and I heard it was in aid of Pil­grims Hos­pice I just had to do it.

“I’m more ex­cited than ner­vous as I have al­ways wanted to take part in a sky­dive.”
