Mayor of North Lincolnshire to take on 15,000 feet skydive

Cllr Peter Clark, Mayor of North Lincolnshire has set himself a sky-high challenge of jumping out of a plane to raise money for When You Wish Upon A Star.

Cllr Clark will take on the 15,000 feet skydive on 22 April 2018 at Skydive Hibaldstow.

When You Wish Upon A Star is his chosen charity for the Mayor’s Appeal Fund, and Cllr Clark has been raising money throughout the year for them. So far, over £900 has been raised for the skydive challenge, which has exceeded the £375 target.

When You Wish Upon A Star offer children with terminal or life-threatening illnesses something to look forward to at times when they need it the most. They provide a chance for families to spend quality time together, creating very special and treasured memories.

Cllr Peter Clark, Mayor of North Lincolnshire, said: “I am taking on the challenge of a 15,000 feet skydive for my chosen charity, When You Wish Upon A Star, because I want to make dreams come true for sick children.

“Last year, I went to the When you wish upon a Star charity skydive to show my support. After the event I thought to myself, I can do that!

“By doing a skydive I hope to raise much-needed funds for the amazing charity and enable more children to have their wishes come true.

“So please, if you can, donate for this wonderful cause. Any donations are greatly appreciated.”
