Facing fears for Lucy's Days Out
THE founder of a charity set up in memory of her daughter is preparing to face her fear of heights to boost its coffers.
Julie Page, who set up Lucy’s Days Out after 12-year-old Lucy lost her battle with cancer in 2010, is taking part in a tandem skydive to raise money for the charity.
She said: “Last year we had a massive group doing the skydive for Lucy’s Days Out. There were 57 jumpers, and a lot of people asked me if I was doing it. I didn’t because I’m really terrified of heights. But when we started organising it again for this year I thought I can’t face all those people asking me again.
“I’m terrified - I can’t even do the helter skelter steps, but Lucy was so brave and she faced all her fears so the least I can do is be strapped to somebody and thrown out of a plane.”
Mrs Page will be one of 20 jumpers taking part at Old Sarum Airfield on September 21.
