Jill and Kieron Scillitoe - Sky diving for the Shannon

Beccles Airfield

68-year old Wells resident and RNLI supporter Jill Scillitoe will doing a sky dive from Beccles airfield on 15 May to raise funds for the Wells Shannon Lifeboat appeal. After some persuasion, her son Kieron (age 44) will also be jumping.

Jill and Kieron are hoping to raise £2000 by braving something which is a long way from their comfort zone and have managed to add parachuting to the long list of things people in the local community have done to support our appeal which now includes walking, running, cycling, swimming, rowing, biking, driving, singing, baking, drawing, painting, knitting, talking, cooking, eating, brewing and drinking!
