Barbara Willbye flies high for Tulips

Readers mail…..
Sue Tilt…..

What an amazing accomplishment leaping off a mountain on a tandem paraglide when you are absolutely terrified of heights ….. well this is what Barbara Willbye did for Tulips and raised a staggering 12,168.50TL plus £885 GBP (x 7TL = 6,195TL) Totalling 18,363.50TL!!!

As Barbara has said, there are so many people to thank but firstly she would like to thank Highline Tandem Paragliding for donating the jump free of charge.

Barbara would also like to thank her husband, Kevin, who has supported her every step of the way during her fears for this challenge and he has donated what the cost of the jump would have been to her fundraising cause.

BRT have proved a wonderful support by inviting Barbara to both the Radio and TV for interviews plus sending a film crew to the landing site to film her descent, thank you to all involved.

Without a doubt there is a huge thank you to everyone who donated, there are so many that we physically cannot list you all but you know who you are and Barbara thanks you all from the bottom of her heart. The support and encouragement of you all helped drive her on and the amount that you all raised is beyond her wildest dreams.

Needless to say that Barbara is not going to do this jump ever again!
