Two vet nurses from a Dagenham practice are gearing up to make their first sky-dive
Jessica Porter and Daryl Schneider who work at Goddard Veterinary Group in Oxlow Lane, will be making the big leap on September 15 in aid of St Clare Hospice.
The hospice, in Hastingwood, Essex, provides palliative care to those living with life-limiting or terminal illnesses.
Jessica, from Ongar, said: “Over the past year I have supported and raised vitally needed funds for St Francis Hospice and have now decided to take on a new challenge.
“Daryl talked me into doing a sky-dive and we’ll be doing it at Sibson Airfield near Peterborough.”
“We’re raising money for St Clare’s because it’s a lifeline for so many local families. We hope to raise £800 between us to support its vital work.”
