Interview Kaylie Gooch - May 2016

1. What gave you the idea to choose to do a tandem skydive over a sponsored walk or run for example?

I have always wanted to try skydiving, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity so when my auntie mentioned she had seen the hospice were holding a charity skydive event we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to fulfil our dream and raise money for a brilliant charity. 

2. Do you have any connection with St Andrew's Childrens Hospice?

As a student nurse, I know the importance of hospices. And the brilliant job providing a haven and creating memories for family and friends of individuals with life-limiting or terminal illnesses. We never know when we might need to use them for our own family and friends. 

3. How did you find the experience?

The whole day was brilliant from start to finish. All the team from checking in to leaving at the end of the day were supportive and professional throughout. Nerves built up through the morning but as soon as I met my tandem partner Jonno, I was put at ease by his friendly jokey personality.
