Jim Smith, along with his mum Laura and dad Trevor, will be embarking on an incredible Skydive on 12th August 2017 to commemorate the day that his sister Milly would have turned 25.

Milly passed away 20 years ago after battling cancer, and was supported by Candlelighters all those years ago. Speaking of Milly’s treatment, Jim kindly noted: “Candlelighters are truly, truly amazing.”

It’s an amazing challenge, with the group of three jumping out of a plane at an astounding 13,000 feet! We are so grateful for the support we’re receiving from Jim and his parents, and it’s a wonderful way to remember Milly on a landmark birthday.
