Margate care assistant to take on 10,000ft skydive in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society

Natalie will do the skydive in August

A Margate care worker will be hurling herself out of a plane at 10,000 ft next month to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Natalie Hudson, 41, will undertake the challenge at Headcorn airfield on August 7 and will hurtle at 120mph from the aircraft in an accompanied skydive.

The mum-of-three will be attached to an instructor for the dive but admits she is terrified!

Natalie said: “I’m an over- night care assistant and I work with many people who have Alzheimer’s/Dementia.

“Some people had really amazing lives, one man was an author and documentary maker and then he had dementia and didn’t know anyone anymore. It is so sad and really affects the families so much.

“The thought of the dive scares me and I don’t like heights but I wanted to do something that would be really hard and I’d wanted to try this so decided I was just going to do it.”

Natalie has a £600 target and has managed to raise half that sum so far.

Some 944,000 people are estimated to be living with dementia in the UK. The Alzheimer’s Society helps with support, research and lobbying of government for better funding.

  1. What a modest, caring individual. Wishing her good luck, I hope she exceeds her fundraising target and enjoys the dive.
