Last month, all three generations of Morgan Davies took to the skies to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity, the MS Society and the NSPCC.
On Saturday, May 28, Carol Davies, Samantha Weston, and Claire Stansfield boarded an aircraft at Sibson Airfield, Peterborough, before soaring to just over 13,000 feet, jumping out and falling at around 120mph, descending 5,000 feet in around 40 seconds.
Samantha Weston, Director of Morgan Davies, said: “It was amazing, I can’t believe how much I enjoyed the whole experience. It’s something I’m really keen to do again next year, I’m just not too sure about who I’ll get to come with me!”
The Brain Tumour Charity is particularly close to everyone’s hearts, as Carol’s daughter, Samantha’s sister, Claire Stansfield, lost her partner Andy Salmon to brain cancer four years ago.
The Charity identify that 29 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour every day and over 5,000 people lost their lives to a brain tumour every year.
Carol Davies, Founder of Morgan Davies, said: “I’m really glad I’ve done it and we’ve raised such a great amount for charity, although it was terrifying. I will not be joining Samantha next year.
“All our friends and family turned out to support us and were waiting once we landed with champagne. Everyone was in such high spirits all day, especially since we were raising money for a charity so close to all our hearts.”
We have raised over £3,000 in total across all three charities and are aiming to raise £5,000 over the next three weeks.
