Skydiving for Charity

Knaresborough Rotary President Helen Westmancoat is to jump out of an aeroplane to raise much needed funds for the organisation. Like so many charities, Rotary fundraising events have been stopped by the Covid19 virus pandemic. President Helen has agreed to do a ‘skydive’ on October 9th at Hibaldstow in North Lincolnshire

Having completed 43 tandem jumps since 2011, she has previously raised in the region of £7,000 for various charities

Helen said, “It is a difficult time for everyone, Rotarians have an important role to play. Financial support has been given to both Harrogate Foodbank and Resurrected Bites. The club has been involved in setting up and operating Knaresborough Connectors. Disposable Face masks have been donated to Community groups. For the time being the club will continue to meet online and respond to the challenges that the pandemic has created”.

Donations can be made at Helen's ‘Just Giving’ page  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/helen-westmancoat5?newPage=True

There are no age limits to membership. Rotary meets weekly (online at present) for fellowship, with a range of interesting speakers on a variety of topics.
