NORA: We did it! A wonderful experience. No fear just anticipation and enjoyment and relief that I hadn't heeded those who worried about my old bones and ticker!  All thought I was Ailbhe's Mum come to watch her! Thanks for your ongoing sponsorship.  Please forward the link to others to keep the momentum going and fingers crossed we reach our target!  Every £1 counts.

AILBHE: Sky diving was a bucket list priority, but family and friends were not up for it so I needed to meet someone as crazy as I was! 
Nora and I were fortunate to be introduced by Rhuaidhri at the Irish Embassy where she was representing SIPP at a joint event run by the Irish in Britain and the IIBN in February.

Event details

Skydiving for SIPP 25.8.18

AILBHE: I visited SIPP to see how I could help them with the work they do.  Nora mentioned wanting to do a tandem sky dive and asked if I would join her.  The rest is history!!
I am looking forward to August 25th and know we will both enjoy the experience. I'm asking you to please sponsor us to raise funds for SIPP to enable them to carry on their good work.
NORA: I know you’ll all have your fingers crossed that weather conditions will be just right and we’ll both have a safe landing!!!

Please help us by sponsoring this event for a vital community service for elderly Irish.  Please leave a message so that we know who you are.  We will keep you updated so please visit the site regularly.
Thank you
