A brave Scunthorpe woman has raised thousands of pounds by skydiving from 15,000ft in aid of Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
Administrator Karis Jepson (25) raised a total of £2,345 for Lindsey Lodge Hospice in memory of her Dad, Chris Jepson, who sadly passed away there this year.
Karis said: “My Dad loved his time spent at the Hospice Wellbeing Centre and received incredible care from Lindsey Lodge.
“The support we’ve all received as a family has been amazing and I wanted to give something back to the Hospice to say thank you.”
She added: “The skydive was an experience I’ll never forget! Although I didn’t exactly love every moment of it, I’m so proud to have completed it and raised such an incredible amount of money. I think my Dad would’ve been watching over and smiling.
“I’m so grateful for the support I received from everyone, including my partner Tom and Mum Anne, as well as Dad’s best friend Billy and his wife Angie, who all gave me incredible support. My Dad’s work colleagues were also fantastic, raising sponsorship money for me.”
Lindsey Lodge Hospice fundraiser Selina Doyle said: “I’d like to say a big thank you to Karis on behalf of everyone at Lindsey Lodge.”
“She is an incredible ambassador of Lindsey Lodge Hospice. We know how much of a challenge this was for her to undertake and we’re so proud of her for completing it and helping so many people.”
“Every penny she’s raised will go towards ensuring our patients and their families receive our specialist care and services when they need it most.”
