Skydiving sisters Hannah and Rachel Goldstein raised nearly £2,000 for Camp Simcha when they took part in their latest fundraiser for the charity.
Hannah, a teacher at Immanuel College and Camp Simcha ‘Big Sister’ volunteer for the last four years, said: “In my role as a volunteer I see weekly how important the charity’s work is for families who have a seriously ill child, not only all the amazing support services, but also the moments of joy they bring to families at such difficult times.
“For this reason, we have always supported Camp Simcha but Rachel and I decided this time we should push ourselves out of our comfort zone.
“It was pretty scary sitting in the plane waiting to go but after the 30-45 second free fall, where I think I screamed a lot, it was amazing. I loved it.”
Rachel, 19, a student at Nottingham University, said: “I’m pleased I did it but it definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone!
“I’m also very grateful that everyone was so generous in their sponsorship because I can honestly say I will never, ever, be doing that again.”
