Rainbow Designs’ Tony Mace will be doing a tandem skydive with his niece Aice Seymour to raise money for Crohn’s and Colitis UK.
The charity has helped his niece for the last 11 years and the two will be taking to the skies on March 28th.
On his DoItForCharity page, Mace states: ‘When Alice was nine years old she was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, a disease that affects your digestive system. She has had many ups and downs since being diagnosed including multiple stays in hospital and a wide range of treatments. She has had treatments such as infusions, not been able to eat for up to eight weeks at a time and now she is on a medication used for cancer patients.
‘Crohns and Colitis UK have been there to help Alice and her family when we needed it, and I would like to give something back to them and to other Crohns or Colitis sufferers. It is often hard for others to understand how this can affect people as it is often called the ‘invisible disease’ as you cannot see it from the outside. I want to raise this money and raise awareness about Crohns and Colitis so that others can understand her illness.
‘I would really appreciate your support. For those who know me, I’m petrified of heights but want to do this so much to help raise as much money as we can for such a worthy charity.’
