Kristina skydived to support our charity. Would you?

Posted by Devon Partnership Trust in Charity, News on 8th March, 2019

Recently Kristina Pill took on a 15,000ft challenge to support our charity and has raised an impressive £555. She said: “The jump was incredible, it was a beautiful day and knowing so many people had sponsored me to do it, I didn’t let myself get nervous and just enjoyed this once in a lifetime experience.” Kristina would like to use the money she has raised to help the Depression and Anxiety Service in Exeter to improve the environment for patients.
 
Katie Lenton, IT Service Support Team Leader, did her jump last year to raise money to support our patients' recovery and wellbeing, but also face her own personal fear of heights; in Katie’s words, ‘if you’re going to do it, you got to go big!’ 
 
When asking Katie why other people should do it she said, “It’s a brilliant opportunity to raise money for a great charity, it is also a great opportunity to support your colleagues, encourage each other to do something that they may not have done before and there is also a free drink at the end.”
