Natalie`s Skydive for MND

Meet here one very brave young lady-Natalie Barclay [pictured above ] preparing herself for a 12, 000 foot tandem sky dive jump at Headcorn Parachute club [ www.Headcorn.com] in Kent last month.
Natalie lost her beloved "Pops " three years ago to motor neurone disease and since then her and her mum Tracy has been involved in raising funds for MND
I don`t think, looking at this I could do it-could you ? It looks an awful long way down !!
She`s smiling !
Looks like you are having a great time - WOW-what an experience - I`am sure you will never forget it !!

PHEW !
Well done ! what a perfect landing !
Natalie set herself a fundraising target of £395 she has exceeded that-the total raised so far stands at £620.00 and the money is still coming in !!
If you wish to donate you can find Natalie`s Just Giving Page at www.justgiving.com/nataliebarclay
Pictured above with Natalie after the jump- is one very relieved and proud mum Tracy [centre ] and nan Phyllis
-Tracy laughs Natalie has always been an adrenalin junkie ! next year she plans on a wing walk but only if the plane goes upside down !
We haven`t seen the last of you yet then Natalie !!

Ooph! That looks like fun for someone her age. Me.... nah, I would be a goner before I landed. Gutsy kid!

I agree with you Sharon- even if I was twenty years younger-I`d have heart failure on the way down !

She's a braver girl than I am but how wonderful and what an experience. No, don't think I would have done this in my youth either ;) Thanks for stopping by Janet. To answer your question about the difference between a damselfly and a dragonfly, if you go to the following link, it has a very good explanation.
