The Toy Hearts lead singer and mandolin player Hannah Johnson will participate in a Skydive this July/August 2012 (weather permitted), to help raise money in aid of The Psoriasis Association.
Hannah was diagnosed with the skin condition at the age of 13 and for some time, has been anxious to organise an event that would help give back to a charity that has directly benefitted herself, and many other psoriasis sufferers over the years. She will be braving the skies with her friend Maryse Westcott (Stone the Crows Clothing) and both brave ladies seek to raise £1000 each through their courageous endeavours. Hannah had this to say recently about her summer jump:
"I am both very nervous and excited about my skydive in July.... Although I have done it once before, I am probably more nervous this time round, as I know what to expect! I am so very grateful to everyone who has sponsored me so far and just hope that I can somehow reach my goal of £1000 by July... EEeeekkk! The Psoriasis Association is a great charity and one very close to my heart. It is the leading national charity working for people with psoriasis, like myself, and receives no funding from Government. All donations received help to sustain their work in supporting people affected by psoriasis, raise awareness of the condition and fund research projects. 100% of the money I raise goes directly to The Psoriasis Association, so if you can afford to, and would like to sponsor me, please visit my Just Giving Page @ http://www.justgiving.com/Hannah-Johnson3"
Hannah and Maryse will also be hosting a charity event, featuring an evening of live entertainment at The Red Tent in Leicester. Initially this event was scheduled for July, but has now been postponed until October/November 2012, dates to be confirmed ASAP! EVERYONE is welcome and approximate details are listed below:
