Frankie did her skydive!

Well... she did it! My baby sister did her skydive for Mind, and I am so unbelievably proud of her for facing her demons and jumping out of a plane!

Frankie is naturally very nervous, and is quite like me in some senses. This is why it meant so much to me she was willing to jump out of a plane to raise money for a charity so close to our hearts.

My whole family attended, and we all wore Mind t-shirts which was brilliant! The support not only helped Frankie, but definitely touched my heart as well, knowing my family are being so incredibly open and supportive.

All in all, Frankie raised about £600, which I'm so proud of her for! She still has her Just Giving page, so if you want to donate anything, please feel free to, especially as she has done the jump now... ;-)

Here's some pictures from the day...

Frankie and me before her jump. She doesn't look too nervous!

From left to right: Me, Frankie, my mum, and my other sister Jessie. All proudly wearing our blue t-shirts!

This looks way too over-posed but it actually wasn't! We were trying to see which parachute was Frankie!


Here she comes... the first one to jump from her plane!

The little grin says it all, bless her!

We call this her "bad ass" walk. 


Safe on the ground - so proud of her. x
