Kings of Wessex Academy student jumps for bibic
16 year old Toby Rant has chosen to jump from 15,000 feet to raise funds for bibic.
Toby who is a sixth form student at Kings of Wessex Academy in cheddar, Somerset is passionate about supporting bibic through his tandem jump;
“bibic is a cause which is very important to me, as I believe more than anything that all children should be given equal opportunities in life, and bibic focuses on enabling these young people’s independence and confidence and helps them towards bright futures.
On average, 3 children in every UK classroom have some form of learning or developmental difficulty, and not even 8% of these strong young people receive regular governmental support. This is not even close to enough, and I hope that by working with bibic I can increase the support that at lease some of these people get”.
Andy Hirst, General Fundraising and Marketing Officer says “Toby is a very brave and determined young man and we are so delighted to have him on board to raise funds for us. He was fully ready to go just before the lockdown and so our fingers are very tightly crossed that he can jump on August 1st.
A JustGiving page has been set up if you would like to support this incredible fundraising effort.
