High-flying Amy uses first ever skydive to support Mary's Meals

Back to all stories | Posted on 12 Jan 2018 in News

Amy McSherry has helped feed some of the world’s poorest children after completing an incredible 10,000ft skydive in support of Mary’s Meals.

The fearless early years worker, from Bishopbriggs, has raised over £800 so far, which will go to providing life-changing daily school meals for impoverished children.

The 21-year-old admits she was nervous ahead of her first ever skydive, which took place at Fife Airport.  But she was spurred on knowing the difference her fundraising would make.

Amy, who works at Cleddens Learning and Childcare Centre in her hometown, said: “I’m aware of the life-changing aid that Mary’s Meals provides daily so despite being nervous about the jump, I remained mindful of the amazing work the charity does to support some of the world’s poorest communities.

“I very grateful to everyone who has supported me in my fundraising efforts, including my family and friends, my fellow parishioners at St Augustine’s RC Church in Milton, and my work colleagues.”

We’re all on cloud nine, thanks to high-flying Amy!
