When You Wish Upon A Star offers children with terminal or life-threatening illnesses something to look forward to at times when they need it the most.
They provide a chance for families to spend quality time together, creating very special and treasured memories.
The Mayor said: “I am taking on the challenge of a 15,000 feet skydive for my chosen charity, When You Wish Upon A Star, because I want to make dreams come true for sick children.
“Last year, I went to the When you wish upon a Star charity skydive to show my support. After the event I thought to myself, I can do that!
“By doing a skydive I hope to raise much-needed funds for the amazing charity and enable more children to have their wishes come true.
“So please, if you can, donate for this wonderful cause. Any donations are greatly appreciated.”
