On Sunday 26th June, Bird and Amy will be heading to Brackley Airfield in Oxfordshire where they will experience an exhilarating free-fall from 10,000 ft at speeds of up to 120 mph, all in support of New College Worcester (NCW) and the amazing work they do.
The pair, who are absolutely terrified of heights, are aiming to raise £1,000 for NCW. Bird comments: “When I was asked if I’d be interested in taking part in a Skydive to raise money for NCW, my first instinct was ‘yes’, followed very closely by – ‘what have I just done?’. After pondering my sheer bravery (or stupidity), I realised that I will experience one of the best views in the world and how lucky am I that I get to see it? The young people that NCW support may never have that luxury and my fear of heights shouldn’t compromise an experience that others would dream of. The work that NCW do is crucial to the development of confidence and self-esteem to individuals that are blind and vision impaired, and I think it’s brilliant that each student has a tailored programme, so their individual needs are catered for. I look forward to raising money for a great cause!”.
Amy adds: “I have always been keen to help and support charities through fundraising as and where I can, although I never in a million years imagined that I would be jumping from 10,000ft (I know, call me crazy). The only thing getting me through the fear is knowing that I am jumping for an incredible charity who focus on supporting individuals who are blind and vision impaired. NCW have tailored programs focusing on academic achievement, independent living skills and involvement in extracurricular activities and I feel it’s so important that this work continues so that everyone at the college are able to have the same opportunities in life”.

I’m sure you will join us in wishing them both the best of luck for the day.
NCW is a national residential school and college for young people aged 11 to 19 who are blind or vision impaired.
Every student has a tailored programme, carefully planned, and delivered to meet their individual needs in three key areas: academic achievement, independent living skills and involvement in extracurricular activities at the college and in the community.
The opportunities provided to students in these areas of provision play a crucial role in the development of confidence and self-esteem and preparation for life beyond our college.
