Oxford United took to the skies yesterday as staff joined our friends at Helen & Douglas House for a Skydive.
Helen & Douglas House are celebrating 40 years since they became the world’s first children’s hospice and do amazing work to support so many families around Oxfordshire. On Sunday Oxford United fans and staff jumped together to help raise funds and awareness.
Head of Medical Amy Cranston, Head of Academy Dan Harris, Sport Scientist Dwayne Peasah, Head of Marketing Tom Law and Marketing Assistant Sam Heason all volunteered to do a tandem jump, with Manager Karl Robinson and his family there to lend support when they landed.
Fans joined the jump including Craig Greenough whose daughter Ella is a massive Oxford United fanand goes to Helen & Douglas House for short supportive stays to help manage her long-term conditions.
Dan Harris told us
"It was an amazing day and to do it for Helen & Douglas House was fantastic. I think we were all a little nervous about it but what an experience and I am so glad I did it. We all landed safely and meeting the staff and people who Helen & Douglas House help and support was the perfect way to end an unforgettable day."
