18-year-old is sky high on birth­day

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

Many peo­ple have lit­tle rec­ol­lec­tion of their 18th birth­days, but for Oliver Al­lan his spe­cial day proved to be an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence.

Oliver from Wer­ring­ton took part in a sky­dive at Sib­son Air­field to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foun­da­tion UK which cre­ates life-chang­ing wishes for chil­dren with crit­i­cal ill­nesses. The teenager has so far raised £970, but this could dou­ble thanks to the Mor­risons Foun­da­tion where staff match the amount you fundraise.

Oliver said: “The ex­pe­ri­ence was one of the best things I’ve done so far - hang­ing out the edge of the plane is a feel­ing you can’t repli­cate. I re­ally want to say a huge thank you to any­one that do­nated. It’s gone to an amaz­ing cause.”
