Year 11 student Haydn Bennett is taking part in a tandem skydive in Peterborough in aide of Crazy Hats Breast Cancer on the 9 July to raise money for a fantastic charity that is close to his heart.
Haydn lost his granddad to prostate cancer when he was 9 years old and at the same time his nan was coping with breast cancer. She is now in remission and Crazy Hats are a support group that has helped her cope with losing her husband and her own illness. He said ‘I am not feeling nervous, I love extreme sports and can’t wait to do it, especially as I will be raising money for such an important charity at the same time. I want to raise as much money as I can as they helped my nan out so much when my granddad passed away and I think it’s really important to do more research to try to find a cure for this horrible disease that effects the lives of so many people.
‘So far I have raise £85 but I would like to raise £600 so that I can ensure as much money as possible goes to Crazy Hats to help other families that have been through what my family has.’
