Help Chakotay raise money for Helping Wings

11 April 2017

SandpiperCI would like to Help Raise funds for a good cause.

Chakotay Wood is 17 years of age and was born with several medical conditions, (spinal dysraphism, a very rare form of spina bifida and congenital scoliosis), requiring major spine surgeries at Great Ormond Street Hospital. He now has titanium rods and bolts in his upper spine and wishes to raise awareness that not all disabilities are visible.

He will be doing a charity tandem skydive in April 2017, to help raise funds for Helping Wings and would like to raise at least £2000 in order to give back to the charity who helped him and to give others the same opportunities that he has had. The tandem skydive will be difficult for him to undertake, not only with his disabilities but it goes against the grain to jump out of a fully functional aircraft! 

Today and for the next week our stores at Marks and Spencer, Iceland, Food Hall and Checkers Xpress in Jersey will be collecting donations no matter how small, using our buckets at the till points. Feel free to give generously for this worthy cause. All donated money will go to the locally based charity.
