Sonia has worked in the Social care arena with children and young people for many years and is mother of two adult children.
Now for some years she wanted to do a tandem parachute/skydive, but the problem was not falling out of a plane, but which charity to choose. (and some of my family and friends being scared and thinking sje was crazy)…dilemma.
Sonia chose Sickle Cell Care Manchester for the following reasons…
Although she doesn’t have anyone in her family that suffers from (lives with Sickle Cell) on hearing more about this condition and how the numerous symptoms affects people from our communities, helped her to decide to do the Skydive to raise funds for such a worthy cause, in order to help these individuals to access the help and support they need to live a healthy life.
Sonia eventually completed her Skydive on 2.5.2019 and not jumping at 11,000ft as originally planned but 15,000ft raising £1630.00 in total.
Sonia has pledged to continue to support this worthy cause.
Leaving a Gift
Ever thought about leaving a gift in your will to help the fight against Sickle Cell?
Over 15,000 people in the UK live with sickle cell; a genetic blood disorder causing anaemia and episodes of severe pain. Over time people with sickle cell can experience damage to many of the body’s vital organs. At this time the only “cure” for the disorder is bone marrow transplant but this is not something that all sufferers have access to because of the need for a suitable donor.
By leaving a gift to Sickle Cell Care Manchester in your will you will be helping to transform the lives of future sufferers of Sickle Cell Disease and encouraging the fight further.
Leaving a gift in your will to Sickle Cell Care Manchester will enable us to continue outreach and community work that we do. It will enable us to help more people and make a difference in more lives.
When writing your will please consider Sickle Cell Care Manchester and the difference your donation will make after life.
