Sky’s the limit for char­ity thank-you

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY - BY JONATHAN KALMUS

A YOUNG Manch­ester mum has made a 15,000-foot sky­dive to raise £7,000 for char­i­ties which helped her fam­ily be­fore and af­ter the death of her hus­band from can­cer.

Jus­tine Radi­ven and her friend Jus­tine Gough jumped in aid of Chai Can­cer Care, which of­fered sup­port and ther­apy when Mrs Radi­ven’s hus­band, Daniel, was gravely ill and af­ter his death. Half the money will go to ed­u­ca­tional char­ity Seed, whose staff helped Mrs Radi­ven to coun­sel her chil­dren.

“Chai have been in­valu­able and re­ally helped with the bur­den dur­ing my hus­band’s ill­ness,” she said. “They con­tinue to sup­port me with ther­a­pies and coun­selling and a play ther­a­pist for my two el­dest chil­dren. Seed are an amaz­ing group of peo­ple who have made us part of their fam­i­lies, help­ing me to an­swer some of the most dif­fi­cult ques­tions of my el­dest daugh­ter, who is six years old.”
