Emma Poulter, a year 11 student at Harrogate High School raised money for the children’s cancer and leukaemia group (CCLG) by doing a 10, 000 feet high skydive in Bridlington.
Supported by family, friends, Mr Bayston, Caitlin and her family, Emma, currently 16 took the jump on a gloriously sunny day. She has set her sights on working in the health care industry, specifically on child oncology.
£500 so far has been raised with more donations flooding in and the school are to hold a whole school non-uniform day in honour of her achievement. She has already expressed her intention to keep raising money by pencilling in another skydive for next year.
Emma Poulter said:
Doing the skydive was an amazing experience, it was great raising money and I’m so happy it’s going to such a worthy cause.
Harrogate High School Principal, Andrew Bayston said:
We are incredibly proud of what Emma has done. It is especially wonderful seeing students coming together and helping each other in a time of need.
