Mum says big thank you to pre-school...with a skydive
A SLEAFORD mum has gone to extreme lengths, or heights, to say thank you to pre-school staff who have helped her little boy to grow.
Amy Davies-Haw has completed a sky dive to help raise money for the Daisy Chain pre-school in Billinghay, to give something back to the staff for all they have done for her son Bradley.
She explained: “Bradley was a really timid boy at his former pre-school, but since he’s started at Daisy Chain he’s a totally different boy and I can’t thank the staff enough for all they have done for him.”
Amy went to the North London Parachute School at Chatteris Airfield on July 15 and jumped out of the plane at 13,000ft.
She described the experience: “It’s really great up there, I was nervous on the plane journey up but once you’re up there, you’re too high up to worry about the height. You don’t feel like you’re falling either, you feel weightless. Once I got down I wanted to go again.”
Amy was sponsored by Billinghay businesses to help raise money for the skydive, and thanks to support from The Ship Inn, Twells of Billinghay and Chip off the Old Block chip shop, which is run by her parents, she has raised £270 for Daisy Chain.
The pre-school is hoping to buy some new ICT equipment for the children, including digital cameras and remote control toys.
Manager Carole Farrow said that everyone at the pre-school has seen how much Bradley has grown in confidence, and that the money Amy has raised will come in very handy for them.
