Jumping for Tiggywinkles

Sian & Sophie

Sian and Sophie are two of the cheerful staff who help to brighten the journey of many local commuters as they make their way to work via Haddenham & Thame Parkway, with the help of a little caffeine boost at the Little Italy coffee bar.

As well as offering a friendly greeting and fine customer service at Little Italy, Sian has also been volunteering for Tiggywinkles for nearly three years, giving up some of her spare time to help rescue large mammals and birds when they are discovered sick or injured.

Her rescue list has been growing rapidly: badgers, swans, deer, red kites ... you name the animal and it has probably been in the boot of Sian's car!

Now she and Sophie want to go the extra mile by raising money to help support Tiggywinkles in the admirable work they do by jumping out of a perfectly good plane at 13,000ft and falling to the ground at an exhilarating speed!

Their jump is scheduled to take place on Saturday 4th November ... and the nerves are beginning to make their presence felt!

Clearly, a little encouragement is needed, by way of some generous sponsorship from the Haddenham community.
As Sian is keen to stress: "all the money donated will go towards easing the suffering and distress of injured wildlife".

If you want to contribute to this worthy cause, and help them considerably overshoot their fundraising target, Sian & Sophie's JustGiving page is here

Alternatively, you can add your name to the sponsorship form in Little Italy at the Station

Or simply text TIGY52 with your donation amount to 70070 ❤

Fingers crossed that neither will require any splints or bandages after their sky dive!
