Boots charity skydive

SkydiveOn Saturday the 27th July a brave pair donned their goggles, suits and parachutes ready to leap 15,000 feet from an aeroplane in aid of charity. The pair made up of Boots Hearing Aid Audiologist, Jessica Kyei-Yamoah and Boots Hearingcare customer, Joan Robinson jumped along with a team who raising in total an amazing £6,000 for local charity, the York Blind and Partially Sighted Society.

The jump took place at Hibaldstow airfield which is near Brigg in North Lincolnshire and was a real challenge for Jessica; speaking of her experience she said:  ‘Doing the jump with Joan was amazing, she is such a strong, inspirational lady. Joan can't wait to do it again, and although I enjoyed it, I'm not sure it is not something I'll repeat in a hurry!’

YBPSS is a Yorkshire based independent charity which works to help people with sight problems to achieve independence with dignity, in all aspects of life. Well done to Jessica and Joan, we hope the money raised helps the York Blind and Partially Sighted Society continue their good work.
