BRAVE mother-of-three is taking the ultimate plunge in August by skydiving for a national baby charity.
St Leonards parent-blogger Sarah Chillingworth, 30, has decided to take part in the skydive to raise money for The Lullaby Trust after reading how a fellow blogger, Jennie ‘Edspire,’ lost her nine-month baby Matilda Mae to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in 2013.
Joining a group of fellow blogger mums and dads, Sarah will be skydiving in memory of Matilda Mae in a bid to raise funds for the The Lullaby Trust which provides expert advice support for bereaved parents and familes affected SIDS.
Sarah said: “Matilda Mae’s story deeply affected me as she would have been the same age as my daughter Hannah. When I heard about the skydive, I had to get involved. I had always wanted to do a skydive but to do one for such an amazing charity is the icing on the cake. As my youngest daughter approaches nine months old, I can’t even begin to imagine my life without her, yet sadly over 600 babies still die due to SIDS in the UK every year. I want to do something to help. No mother should have to live without their baby.”
The Lullaby Trust’s Chief Executive, Francine Bates, said “We’re absolutely delighted to have the support of such a fantastic community of parents. It’s an incredibly brave thing they’re doing for us and we wish them all the very best.” Sarah is also organising a Girls Night Out charity fundraiser meal for The Lullaby Trust on May 22 at Ada Turkish Barbeque and Meze Bar in Bexhill. Tcikets cost £20 and includes a three course meal. To buy a ticket or for more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
