A huge thank you to our AMAZING Volunteer Sylvia who has raised over £4000 for Smart Works Newcastle.

Sky diving 14000ft from a small airplane in Dubai is no mean feat – particularly when it’s only been decided a week in advance!

When asked why she was Skydiving for Smart Works Newcastle, Sylvia said “[Through volunteering] I meet many women who have not had the opportunities in life that so many of us take for granted. Women, who [may not] have a support network of family, friends and colleagues who look out for them and encourage them to be the best they can be. It is a privilege and a joy to see their confidence grow as they recognise their skills and what they can offer a prospective employer”.

Given that Sylvia’s fundraising target was £500, saying that she ‘smashed it’ is an understatement.

Thank you again to Sylvia for bringing so much joy to everyone in the Newcastle centre AND for jumping out of an airplane for us…
