Courtney’s skydive boosts Rotherham Barnardo’s

A SKYDIVE has raised more than £1,000 to boost the work of the ReachOut project at Rotherham Barnardo’s.

Every penny brought in thanks to Courtney Fearn’s tandem jump will be spent on fun and creative activities for the borough’s young people who are supported by the project.

The ReachOut team, based on Nightingale Close, provides invaluable one-to-one support for youngsters who are at risk of sexual and criminal exploitation.

Courtney has worked in Rotherham for some time alongside The ReachOut project.

She said raising money and awareness for child exploitation was something that she is very passionate about because she has witnessed first hand the life-changing work they complete with young people.

Courtney is pictured handing over the cheque to children’s services manager Emma Longden, while looking on are, from left to right: ReachOut manager Emma Gosling, ReachOut project worker Debbie Knowles, administrator Deorah Kelsall and ReachOut project worker Sara Cremer.
