Kym takes the plunge for charity skydive
AN ABERDEEN daredevil took fundraising to new heights after jumping from 10,000ft in memory of her godmother.
Kym Mann, pictured, from Kingswells, took the jump to raise funds for Friends of Anchor.
Her late godmother, Alison McInnes, had been a patient at the Anchor Unit at ARI, before she passed away earlier this year.
Mum-of-two Alison had been a patient at the Anchor Unit from early purse to which she was not entitled.”
The Crown Office said amounts “available” for confiscation could be less than estimated gains for a variety of reasons.
Forensic accountants supervise the preparation of all cases.
The accused and the court are advised about what the Crown believes to be the benefit obtained 2010, when she was diagnosed with cancer. She lost her battle with the illness just under a year later, in January 2011, aged 43.
Kym’s original target was to raise £500 from her courageous jump out a plane at Paragon Skydiving Club in Perth.
However, she more than tripled by criminal conduct and the amount believed to be available to pay in a confiscation order.
This often results in it being accepted that lower amounts of money are available for confiscation than the original estima t e d v a l u e o f the assets restrained.
Mrs Miller added that tough action would be taken against to retrieve fraudulently obtained money.
She said: “We will continue to use Proceeds of Crime legislation to target anyone that would seek to benefit from their crimes.
“This case should be a warning to those who think that targeting public funds is an easy option, and a reminder that the legislation covers a wide range of offences where there has been financial benefit.” what she first set out to achieve by raising £1,700. Kym said: “I’m totally overwhelmed by the generosity and support people have shown.” Friends of Anchor fundraising manager Sarah-Jane Milne said: “We are incredibly grateful to Kym for her fantastic bravery and passionate fundraising efforts.”
