Mayor to take to the skies for charity

Published: 2nd Feb 2018

CLLR Karen King, the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, will be taking part in a skydive to raise money for her two mayoral charities.

Taking place on Thursday 5 April, the money raised from the jump will go to The Junction in Redcar, a charity which supports vulnerable young people aged five to 25, and Still Parents a baby bereavement support group for families.

The idea to take part in the skydive came from the Mayor's sister-in-law Lorraine King, who will be helping Karen with fundraising and will also be jumping alongside her.

Cllr King said: "This is going to be an adrenaline-filled experience and it is something I've never done before. However, I'm really looking forward to it and delighted to be continuing to raise money for two very worthwhile charities which do excellent work both in the local area and nationwide.

"It would be great if as many people as possible could donate money to the Mayor's charities - The Junction and Still Parents."

Donations to the Mayor's skydive by either sending cash or a cheque made payable to "The Mayor's Charity Fund" by posting it to: Jane Holmes, Redcar & Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart, Ridley Street, Redcar, TS10 1TD or donate online by going to:
