Balsall Common carers take to the skies for The Ambulance Staff Charity

Solihull Editorial 27th Jul, 2021   0

A TEAM of Balsall Common carers took to the skies to raise funds for the ambulance staff.

The four-strong team from Harper Fields care home raised £2,017 for The Ambulance Staff Charity (TASC), which provides mental health, physical rehabilitation, and financial support for ambulance staff, volunteers and their loved ones, by completing a sky dive.

It was a case of third time lucky for the home’s general manager, Hayley Wilkinson, deputy manager, Melanie McHugh, maintenance manager, Bill Chillwell and senior carer Jane Cook after two previous attempts were called off due to weather conditions.

Hayley said: “It was amazing, such an experience and I am so glad I did it.




“To hear how we have helped TASC is so heart-warming.

“A huge thank you to everyone who donated, friends, families and the residents and staff at Harper Fields too.”
