Thanks for finding my fundraising page. I am the Senior Minister at Locks Heath Free Church, near Fareham, and I am also registered blind due to the degenerative eye condition Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) - I presently have less than 4% vision in daylight. We are raising money for an exciting £4.2million building project to enable us to serve our community even better. The project is a leap of faith - so I thought I would take another one!

Event details

Blind Vicar's Leap of Faith

I will be jumping 13,000 feet in a tandem parachute jump with the RLC Silver Stars at Redlands near Swindon to raise money for our £4.2million Church building extension.

More than 800 people from the local community come through LHFC's doors each week - and we desperately need more space to meet the growing demand. The BUILD project aims to meet that need.

I would love to raise £1 for every foot I fall. Please give generously. Thank you!

It was very inspiring to hear you on the radio yesterday morning - I can identify with the concept that God becomes more real (and amazing!) in times of difficulties. God bless you and your family and your congregation
