Tony is skydiving! Help him reach his £2k target raising funds for Older People in Bristol.

Daredevil Tony, at the ripe young age of 82, is taking to the skies in a bid to raise money for Bristol Older People’s Forum. He is part of a team of people, alongside his pal Zia, making a leap of faith from above and they need your help!

Tony is an active member of the Forum and a number of local charities and organisations where he volunteers his time. He is committed to helping others in Bristol, giving his time and support to numerous individuals to help them feel more integrated in their communities.

Now he is taking on his most daring challenge yet…a sky dive from 15,000 feet on Saturday 14th April at  Sarum Airfield near Salisbury.

Following a number of funding cuts, the future of Bristol Older People’s Forum is under threat and they desperately need to raise funds to enable them to continue.

Bristol Older People’s Forum is a group  who, mainly volunteer their time, to champion the rights of older people across the city – lobbying local government on issues, holding regular meetings and providing useful information for older people in the city. As the longest standing group of influential older people it is a real shame that their future is now uncertain.

Please donate as much or as little as you can to ensure that older people continue to have a voice in Bristol as they continue to help combat growing isolation and loneliness in the city and strive for an equitable city for all ages.

I have updated my personal banking information on GoFundMe so many times, and still they do not pay the money you send me. Their site claims I have not supplied enough information, yet they have managed to pay me some amounts, albeit much later than they promised. I have just updated again, and they tell me money will be transferred in the middle of May!!! Supposed to transfer within 5 working days, DO THEY WORK HALF A DAY A WEEK? WHAT A LOAD OF (B)ANKERS. Don't use them. They can't even be bothered answering queries.

I will be on Radio Ujima - recording on Monday, don't know yet when it's going out.
Some of the Bristol Voices (Downend, Fishponds and perhaps others) have carried an article.
Radio Bcfm hosted our marvellous chair Judith Brown and myself, and Bristol 24/7 interviewed Zia, Judith and me yesterday.
Come on BBC and ITV, you're missing out.
