Theyve Smashed It!
On 21st June 2014, Andrea Denham was one of 279 people who completed a tandem skydive at Skydive UK Ltd, Nr Honiton, setting a New World Record.
Andreas skydive fulfilled a personal ambition as well as raising some £1,500 in sponsorship for Worldwaterworks Limited the charity managed by members of the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge that sends Water-Survival Boxes to families left without access to clean water and other essential items following disasters. Since 2006 a total of 9,300 WSBs has been sent to 35 disasters in 23 countries worldwide. The most recent consignment was of 240 boxes sent to Serbia for families that had lost everything following the worst floods in the region for more than 120 years.
Andrea said of her skydive It was amazing a real adrenaline rush and yet a surreal experience at the same time
Rotarian Hugo Pike, Director of Operations at Worldwaterworks Limited, was full of admiration for Andrea and made the point that as a result of the sponsorship she had raised at least 10 more families (potentially some 50 people) will be protected from water-borne diseases following the next disaster to which our Water-Survival Boxes will be sent.
Andrea is a mother of two boys living in Midsomer Norton, her husband Nigel said What an amazing achievement, I am so proud of her
