MABS Mazarrón is delighted to report that Gillian Gibson safely completed her skydive, realising her dream for her 65th birthday.
She was joined by her son, Glen, at Hibalstow Airfield near Brigg in Lincolnshire, UK. Both completed a tandem jump with an experienced skydiver from SkyDive, who are based at the airfield.
“It was a fantastic experience,” said Gillian “although I won’t deny that the first few seconds of jumping out of the plane were very scary, but then it was amazing. Thank goodness I was strapped to a hunky instructor!!”
Gillian, who lives in Mazarrón, raised €175 for MABS Cancer Support Group in Mazarrón. “We’re absolutely delighted” commented MABS Co-ordinator, Zue Burgess.
“Not only has Gillian realised one of her lifetime ambitions, but she has also thought of others by raising money for those affected by cancer in the Mazarrón area, and we’re extremely grateful to her.”
MABS Mazarrón helps all people in the Mazarrón area who are affected by cancer, providing drivers, translators, information leaflets, equipment, a listening ear, or a shoulder to lean on.
