Harry’s ready to take a leap of faith

published on 14 Apr 2022

The community manager at The Salvation Army in Great Yarmouth will take a leap of faith next week when he does a skydive in aid of the church and charity.

Harry Woods had planned the event for 2020 before it was postponed because of the pandemic. After raising £400 two years ago, Harry said he is even more determined to raise as much as he can for the work that the church and charity does in the town.

He explained: “I’m hoping we can get to £1000. When I first planned this, I was a member of the church. I was looking for something big and bold to highlight all the great work we do. We do rely on local fundraising and this was something I have never done before.

“Everyone has told me I’m barmy but I know that anyway. People have been very supportive. I think they are aware of how much we do and they want to get behind us and support us.”

The skydive isn’t the first time Harry has raised money for The Salvation Army and he has previously taken part in a sponsored leg wax. He said he is determined to do what he can to help The Salvation Army continue its work locally.

He said: “There are so many difficulties and struggles on our doorstep. Everything I raise will be going to Great Yarmouth. At the moment our building needs attention so we can keep serving the community for years to come but we need to have the funds to do it.”

The skydive is on 21 April at Beccles Airfield and you can sponsor Harry via his GoFundMe page.
