Twins hope to peak with parachute jump

TWINS Claire and Stuart Evenden, from Harlow, will be taking the plunge when they take part in a skydive for St Clare Hospice in memory of their nan.

clareparaClaire, who is afraid of heights, said having her brother there would help to ease the nerves as they are so close, but added that older sister Keeley was keeping her feet firmly on the ground.

“It’s not for her, but it’s something outrageous for Stuart and I to do,” she explained. “It’s something that we’ve always wanted to do, and I knew we could do it for charity, so our involvement with St Clare pushed us into doing it.

“We feel truly blessed that so many of our friends and family have supported this great charity – our Nan would be proud.”

Their grandmother, Sylvia Allum, was cared for at the Hastingwood-based Hospice and died in October last year.

Claire and Stuart, 27, have set a fundraising target of £1,000 and have been asking friends, family and colleagues to sponsor them ahead of their jump at Peterborough Sibson Airfield in Cambridgeshire on Saturday, October 5.

Claire added: “St Clare did such a wonderful job of looking after our Nan with everyone else that was in their care – the staff can’t be praised enough. We just want to do our bit so that this charity can continue to help other families like ours.”

Do you fancy signing up for a skydive for St Clare? The next one is scheduled for March 15, registration is £50 and we ask you to pledge to raise a minimum £390 in sponsorship.
