The sky’s the limit for Ayesha and Disability Lincolnshire

Posted by / Tuesday 19 January 2016 /

If you thought your first ever plane ride was a hairy experience, spare a thought for Ayesha Copeland, 22 from Ruskington, who is set to tandem skydive from her first flight this Saturday (23 January).

Ayesha is taking on the challenge to raise money for our Disability Lincolnshire service, where she has been a support worker for over three years. Based at South Park in Lincoln, the service helps disabled children and young people from across the county access community, social and leisure activities.

"People keep telling me I’m mad as I’m terrified of heights. I’ve never even been up in a plane before, let alone jump out of one at 10,000 feet! But I’m determined to show no fear and raise as much money as I can for the families Action for Children supports at Disability Lincolnshire."

Ayesha has been hard at work fundraising since October and has already collected more than £1,770 for the jump by hosting coffee mornings, quiz nights and even a toy pig racing event.

Leila Barron, children’s services manager at Action for Children, said: “We’re all very proud of our daredevil Ayesha and wish her the very best of luck. The funds she’s raising will help us continue to meet the complex needs of the children and young people we work with in Lincolnshire.”
