The fundraising team here at Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity took on their own challenge for Fearless February on 10th February by scaling the heights of the O2 in London and Glenys our Head of Service,Tina Fox (parent), Ellie Housley (parent volunteer) Emily Brown (supporter) all completed their tandem skydives on Saturday 17th February which is an amazing achievement!  James Lynes (Ambassador of our Charity) is still to go with his tandem skydive planned for 20th April after being postponed in March due to bad weather so we wish him good luck and sunny skies!

We would love you to join us in your own challenge for Fearless February, whether it be taking on a marathon, climbing up a mountain or white water rafting – the list is endless!  For some inspiration see our Challenge Events page or contact Marielle Birks Community Fundraiser for further information on how to sign-up for your challenge - 01444 473274 or email: marielle.birks@dvlcc.org.uk  What are you waiting for!
