Lollidrop Skydive Summer 2019

This summer saw 13 daredevils flying to new heights in the ‘Lollidrop’ skydive, at Shotton Airfield, Durham.

Staff, volunteers, members, parents and siblings from Lollipop, together raised an astonishing £4,900.00 between them!! This boosts the unrestricted funds that will help Lollipop continue in delivering the outcomes for members and their families.

Parent Dawn Ross, who took part in the jump, shortly after her daughter joined Lollipop said:

We are so lucky and very grateful that we have such a brilliant charity locally. They have been invaluable for our family and we hope to raise lot’s of money for them to continue their amazing work. We honestly can’t praise them enough

Another parent, Mario Janovicius, who has two (CODA) children [of Deaf Adults] at Lollipop was thrilled to dive with BSL support from camera flyer Alan Thompson. Mario was interviewed for That’s TV York, sharing his excitement and achievement in supporting Lollipop as a Deaf parent.

It was a great team-building activity and really challenged each of those who took part. 

Thank you to everyone who supported the skydive and to all who donated.
