Hereford woman plans parachute jump for children’s hair loss charity

An adventurous woman from Hereford is planning to celebrate her upcoming 40th birthday in unique style; by jumping out of a plane to raise money for an inspirational children’s hair loss charity.

Michelle Joinson from Whitecross Road in Hereford is planning to do a parachute jump this Saturday 5th February in Cirencester, and is calling for sponsors in her local area to come forward and donate to a worthy cause.

The money raised from the jump will be donated to the Little Princess Trust, a children’s hair loss charity in Hereford. The Trust aims to provide children who have lost their hair through alopecia or cancer treatment with human hair wigs. The hope is that these wigs and hair pieces will help to boost their confidence and help them cope with their hair loss better.

Michelle’s fundraising money will hopefully cut waiting times for children hoping to receive a wig from the Little Princess Trust.

Michelle, who works for a refrigeration equipment company in Rotherwas, said of her upcoming adventure:

“My 40th birthday is approaching and I wanted to do something to start my 40s off,”
