On Saturday 7th March 2015, College Fundraising Assistant Vicky Jones will skydive from a plane to help the College care for its most needy residents.
“It’s shattering my nerves just thinking about it,” she says, “but I want to do something personally to help the College. This is really a wonderful place and is home to some amazing people, but we need help to look after them. No one is turned away if they can’t meet the cost of living here, but the College receives no government grants or financial support from the Church of England.
“This is why I have decided to do something extreme … I have agreed (despite my mind and body telling me I must be crazy!) to jump from the skies to raise some much needed funds to benefit the lives of the elderly here who have given so much for others.”

Please, make her jump worthwhile!
