We’re appealing to the whole LEH community to support the sprightly daredevil, who is undertaking the challenge to mark the 50th anniversary of her fundraising initiative.
Sheila is the founder of the Combined Charities Christmas Card Shops, which have raised over £5.5 million for good causes since 1971.
She says: “2020 was a disaster for all charities. The pandemic prevented us opening our five pop-up Christmas card shops and stopped all fundraising.
“As this is our 50th year, I wanted to make a special effort to raise much-needed funds for our charities so, I am doing a Wing Walk this week. Please wish me well! I will be scared, but exhilarated, I hope!”
Sheila’s target is £5,000. To donate, please visit her GoFundMe page here. All money raised will be divided between her roster of charities, which include Marie Curie, British Heart Foundation and Oxfam.
