Gravesend mum Sian Williams raises more than £2,000 for ellenor with skydive

By Sean McPolin

A mother has raised more than £2,000 after jumping out of a plane for her daughter that was diagnosed with Leukemia.

Sian Williams, 35, took to the skies on Sunday and propelled her self out of the aircraft thousands of feet in the air, for charity.

Ms Williams, from Gravesend, was in “complete shock” when she found out daughter Lily, six, had the illness in January.

The St John’s Catholic school pupil is currently being treated by Royal Marsen Sutton hospital and Medway Maritime, with the hope of ending treatment by April 2021.

All the money raised will go to Northfleet based ellenor, who help care for Lily.

The chip shop worker, who was excited for the day, said she absolutely loved it.

“It went really well. I’m up to £2053 now which is amazing. The best thing was that Lily was able to come along and watch - she loved it too.

“It was a brilliant day, but is a shame that it was for an emotional cause, but I’m very happy it’s raised a lot of money.

“My brother-in-law dislocated his shoulder in the jump. We met another family who helped club together to buy me a video of the dive to keep the memories.”
