Wildcats Support Sponsored Skydive

posted on 5 September 2011

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats would like to make supporters aware of a fantastic challenge that will take place on Sunday 18 September at Hibaldstow in Brigg

Ebony Fisher, aged 10, is a lifelong patient at the children’s heart surgery unit in Leeds. The unit is in danger of closing and the Wildcats are helping in the fight to keep it open!

The unit at the LGI provides specialist surgery and care to children from all over Yorkshire and the Humber. If the unit were to close, the hundreds of children who require life-saving surgery each year would have to travel much further afield – possibly hundreds of miles – to another facility. This could put those children’s lives in even greater jeopardy.

Ebony has had 2 major operations so far and will need further surgery for her heart defects. Ebony was present at the Round 7 Super League game when the Wildcats played Leeds Rhinos earlier in the season, she met all the Wildcats first team squad and was  presented with a shirt by head coach John Kear.

In addition to the already successful fundraising, Ebony’s cheerleading coach Laura Jones will now be doing a sponsored skydive to raise funds for the children’s heart unit in Leeds. Laura is a big admirer of the work that the children’s heart unit has done with Ebony and other children alike, which has therefore inspired her to undertake the sky dive challenge.

Anybody wishing to support Laura in her skydive can do so by either donating on www.justgiving.com/ebony-laura  or text giving by texting CHSF99 then the amount to 70070 or you can contact Sue Bastow at sue.bastow@hotmail.co.uk.

Good Luck to Laura and behalf of everyone at The Wildcats we would like to wish Ebony and her family all the best.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
