A Crawley woman is to skydive from 10,000ft for charity.

Adeline Moorey, 68, of Ifield, will jump out of a plane in a bid to raise money for Scope on September 19.

She is aiming for about £2,000 but hopes to raise as much as possible.

However, as she explained: “It’s the thought, not the amount that is important.”

Despite the challenge Ms Moorey, who volunteers in the Crawley branch, isn’t intimidated. She said: “I can’t wait, I’m very excited, I just can’t wait, I’m very excited.”

The idea to do the skydive again came from spending the past 15 years working with young people with a disability and wishing to raise money for them.

Working with the charity has proved inspiring.

She said: “They help with the educational side as well, providing one to one support for people. Having seen how much work goes on behind the scenes it was quite an eye opener.”

Scope are aiming to make sure disabled people have the same opportunities as other people in society. They also offer phone support and aid support to parents who may have difficulties in caring for a disabled child.

Money raised from Adeline’s skydive will go towards maintaining the services that Scope provide.
