John’s Big Leap for MS

John Hatfield is all set for his sponsored skydive on 1st August, in aid of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and he would welcome your support. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/John-Hatfield4

John writes: “Not many people can celebrate their 65th birthday and have a 21st in the same year! I will be 65 in July and will reach my 21st year in Slingsby in the same month. So I was trying to think of something special to mark the occasion and had a few crazy ideas but had nothing planned.

Late last year my niece was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). She is the third person I had heard of with this disease after my partner’s niece and a friend’s wife. Anyway, early this year my niece’s husband died suddenly and I thought maybe I could help in some way by raising some money for MS.

I decided to try for a skydive! I’ve never done anything like this before, but if I can help raise a bit of money for MS I will. I was originally given the opportunity on 30th May at Bridlington but this was postponed as all airfields were closed due to Covid-19. I am now expecting to jump on the 1st August.

If anyone would like to sponsor me I have sponsor forms at home or there’s a ‘Justgiving’ page on Facebook. Look for The Big Leap 2020 in my name John Hatfield. Or go to:  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/John-Hatfield4 Alternatively, you can phone me on 01653 628701. Thank you in anticipation.”
