Daredevil Linda Sky Dives to Help War Heroes

Hats off to Linda Lamb, partner within the family law team, who has boldly undertaken to do a sky dive for the charity Help for Heroes.

Linda’s challenge takes place on Sunday April 18 when she will jump 12,000 metres from a small plane with just a parachute for company.

Talking about her forthcoming ordeal, Linda said: “My husband did a tour of duty in Iraq so I have a lot of empathy with our soldiers and their families. When the opportunity arose to do something to help them, I felt inspired to say yes. But as the date draws nearer, the prospect of jumping out of a plane is becoming increasing daunting. The most frightening thing I’ve done is an abseil going headfirst. It was terrifying but I don’t think it will prepare me for my 12,000 metre fall!”

“The important thing is to raise money for our wounded servicemen and women. I’ve had lots of sponsorship support from my colleagues, friends and family but I hope to raise a lot more in the next few weeks.”

Linda will be accompanied in her endeavour by a team of teachers and pupils from Eastbourne College. They are hoping to collectively raise £15,000 for Help for Heroes. All funds will go directly to the charity which provides practical direct support to those servicemen and women wounded in the line of duty in the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
