Pair jump to it for char­ity

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

TWO sup­port­ers of the Rossendale Trust jumped out of a plane to raise money for the char­ity.

Kelly Bai­ley and Mark Shel­ley hoped parachut­ing might in­spire peo­ple to spon­sor them to help the char­ity which sup­ports peo­ple with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties.

They raised more than £1,500.

Mark said: “Par­tic­u­larly as Kelly is scared of heights, we thought hurl­ing our­selves out of an plane above the Cheshire plains at 10,000ft and hurtling to the ground at 125mph might in­spire a do­na­tion.

“It was a plea­sure to do the jump for the Rossendale Trust, what an ex­pe­ri­ence. It was lovely meet­ing the care sup­port work­ers and the fan­tas­tic trust ten­ants.”

Sue Heaven, head of PR and fundrais­ing at the Rossendale Trust, said: “This is a great ef­fort by Mark and Kelly.

“Their funds will make a real dif­fer­ence to the peo­ple we sup­port.”
