Coventrians brave charity skydive for mental health charity

Coventry Editorial 7th Oct, 2023 Updated: 7th Oct, 2023   0

SEVEN Coventrians took the plunge and braved a charity skydive to raise vital cash for Coventry and Warwickshire Mind.

David Thomas-Walls, Emily Mathews, Vanisha Ranchhod, Andrew Vincent, Dan Maher, Kaitlin Wolfe and Scott Tandy from law firm Spencer Gardner Dickins raised £5,600 by falling through the skies in Nottinghamshire.

Cash raised will be used to increase awareness of mental health and reduce the stigma around it.

Coventry and Warwickshire Mind has been the firm’s charity partner for the past two years.

David Thomas-Walls said: “Nothing quite prepares you for it because it isn’t like anything you’ve ever experienced before.

“It was such a breathtaking few minutes but, admittedly, it was a relief to hit the ground safely.

“There is still a stigma around mental health but I don’t mind saying that I have been affected by it in the past and have seen others hit very hard.

That is why we have nominated Coventry and Warwickshire Mind as our charity partners.”
