Support BMN’s Lucyanne in her charity skydive

Published:  22 July, 2013

Builders’ Merchants News’ own Lucyanne Matthews is this Saturday (27 July) taking part in a skydive to raise money for Parkinson’s UK.

“I'm planning to do a skydive in memory of my father, who died last year from Parkinson's/MSA,” she explained. “It is a very personal disease for me as it has also affected other members of my family and friends.

“JustGiving is a great way to donate money straight to charity and it does make a difference. The drugs my father took for part of his illness really helped lengthen his life and improve its quality!

“So please dig deep, and donate now. Thank you.”
