Sky’s the limit for Vic as she helps a charity

BRAVE Bognor Regis woman Vic Fox took to the sky recently to complete a charity skydive .

Vic decided to take on the challenge to celebrate her 30th birthday.

She used the unforgettable occasion to raise £700 for Smile Support & Care.

Vic works for Smile as a support worker. She said: “I wanted to do something big, something that I would always remember.

“So, when the opportunity came up to partake in a skydive on behalf of Smile Support & Care I jumped at the chance – especially as it is on behalf of a cause very close to my heart.”

Vic chose to jump from 15,000ft rather than the standard 10,000ft, which made the jump even more thrilling.

“The skydive was an amazing experience and one that I would love to repeat especially now I know what to expect.  Sitting on the edge of the plane about to go over was scary but mind blowing in equal measures.

“The free fall was terrifying as you lose your bearings, but once the parachute deploys it was lovely, although I did panic about how to land!”

Smile, based in Littlehampton, provides essential respite care to children and young adults with disabilities across Hampshire and West Sussex.

It has also started work on building a short-break centre in Waterlooville in Hampshire to offer essential stays to disabled children and young adults.
