  • Rachel gets her fundraising off to a flying start

    August 16, 2016


    This September, Rachel Verity-Lodge will be doing a sponsored skydive with the Parachute Regiment’s display team, the Red Devils.

    Rachel is the Corporate Account Manager for Identity Merchandise, a local merchandising service.

    She first encountered Cavendish Cancer Care at a networking event in July. It was here that she was introduced to all the work that Cavendish does, and the opportunities for fundraising. The event was intended as a way for local businesses to get to know the charity, but when the idea of a sponsored skydive was raised, Rachel wanted to go the extra mile.

    Rachel says: “I’m questioning my life choices and setting a countdown date for D-day! 8th September 2016, oh boy!

    Any contributions to my sanity – I mean charity – will be HUGELY appreciated. You don’t jump out of a plane for nothing… This is for a good cause.”

    Almost half of Rachel’s £600 target has been reached. You can read more about Rachel’s skydive and donate at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/RachelVL-SKYDIVE
