Friends drop in to help Cleo

A GROUP of fearless skydivers have raised almost £4,000 in sponsorship – cheered on by the brave young lady they were doing it for.

Cleo Rimmer, 11, supported her nine friends and family members who took the plunge from 15,000ft with the money they raised being donated to Cleo’s Children’s Cancer Fund

Cleo, a pupil at Orgill School, is undergoing extensive chemotherapy after she was diagnosed with cancer for the second time in January.

She is currently at home with her family in Orgill in between treatments at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary.

Those who completed the skydive at Grange-over-Sands were Fiona Short, Roy Law, Danielle Groggins, Paul Fitzpatrick, Rachel Dickinson, Val Kirby, Karen Lane, Lindsay Jobson and Jackie Fitzpatrick.

The fundraising campaign has featured a host of well-supported events in Egremont and further afield since it was launched in February, and money raised will be donated to the RVI’s Children’s Cancer Ward, on which Cleo is being treated.

To donate to the skydivers, visit Coleridge Stores at Orgill or to make a general donation or to arrange a fundraising event, call Jackie Fitzpatrick, Cleo’s aunt, on 01946 824030 or email jackierimmer@sky.com.
