Daredevil nurse takes on skydive with son to raise funds

Not content with the usual bakesale or sponsored walk, Scunthrope nurse Karen Wright is taking on a skydive with her son to raise funds for their local hopsice.

Karen is Deputy Senior Nurse on the Inpatient Unit at the Lindsewy Lodge Hopsice and will use the skydive with son Ben to help raise critical funds.

We wanted to challenge ourselves and have an experience we could both try together so this was a perfect choice – however I’m scared of heights, so I’m feeling a bit nervous about what to expect,” Karen said.

She added: “Lindsey Lodge is a wonderful place to work, and provides amazing care for the patients and families it supports, so we know that every penny we raise will be going to a very deserving cause.”

Karen and Ben will be completing their skydive on Sunday 10 December at Hibaldstow Airfield. Anyone who would like to sponsor them can visit their Just Giving page.
