Daniel Heyworth from Buxton clearly likes a challenge! Prompted by his 2020 Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis, he is to face his fear of flying to take to the skies for a 10,000 feet sky dive to raise money for charity.
Daniel, who is part of Tarmac Tunstead’s cement-packing plant team will travel to Bridlington at the end of May to take part in the event to raise money for the MS Society.
“I have always been terrified of flying,” he says. “So, unlike most who take on this challenge, I am looking forward to the actual jump but not the flight to get up there!
“All my friends, family and work colleagues have been amazing since I had my diagnosis. Doing a sky dive has always been on my list of ambitions so prompted by the incredible support I have been getting I decided to go for it! I have already smashed my fundraising target but would love to raise even more. The MS Society does amazing work to help people like me so I hope I can do them proud and hand over a very large cheque after I complete the dive.”
The skydive takes place on MS Day 2021 and Daniel will be doing the jump alone but his wife (Sally) and family will be there to support him.
