Grandma gives back and goes sky high above fundraising target

Joanne Shaw and Kath O’Reilly, both from Manchester, took to the skies to complete their sponsored skydive, smashing their initial £790 fundraising target and raising £1355.

Their fundraising will enable Rainbow Trust to provide 59 hours of support to a family caring for a terminally ill child, helping them make the most of precious time.

Joanne knows only too well how vital this support can be, her grandson Frankii has chronic lung disease and has Downs Syndrome, Rainbow Trust supports her daughter Steph, helping out with hospital appointments, the weekly shop and ensuring that Frankie’s brother Jackson is also supported.

Both ladies managed to smash their fundraising target with the generosity of family and friends, as well as holding a party fundraiser.
