Miss Radnorshire Galaxy To Skydive for Help for Heroes

On 23 May 2012 I will be doing a charity skydive in aid of Help for Heroes at the Airfield Camp, Netheravon, Wiltshire.

Some time ago, I wrote to an old friend (a Royal Marine) who was at the time serving in Afghanistan. The day after he received my letter, he was injured in an IED explosion which resulted in him having his leg amputated. He is 24 years old. After initial treatment, he was taken to Headley Court in Surrey where all wounded soldiers stay until they are recovered.

I really feel that raising money for this cause is important. Help for Heroes is such an inspiring and worthy charity, caring for all the brave men and women injured in service, and they deserve the best treatment. There are hundreds of men and women in Headley Court, some who are barely over the age of 21, who have suffered loss of limbs.  There are many more who have lost their lives in the line of duty. 

I will be doing a bag pack at Newtown Morrisons on 24 February with the current Miss Galaxy International  - Jamie Lee Williams a local Oswestry girl.  I will also be attending Help for Heroes fundraising events. 

If you would like to sponsor my skydive, you can donate online at www.bmycharity.com/larastephen

As I am also the current Miss Radnorshire Galaxy  I will be doing the skydive wearing my sash…..!
