#NightsafeHero Rhiannon, who turns 16 in October, will be doing a skydive in aid of Nightsafe on the 19th of October, to raise much needed funds. Already a long term supporter of Nightsafe, having been part of Nightsafe’s Sleep Out in 2017 with her mum and younger sister when aged only 13.

Rhiannon has a real interest in supporting homeless young people and recently spoke about Nightsafe in her English Language exam.

It’s clear that Rhiannon is passionate in her support having also completed a Sleep Out with friends at St Christopher’s High School last October, and was instrumental in setting up a Young Enterprise scheme which was successful in getting together over 100 Ruck sacks filled with essential items for street homeless people.

This is what she has to say:

Rhiannon Sky Diving For Nightsafe!Hi my name is Rhiannon. I am passionate about making a difference to young people who find themselves homeless in Lancashire. Two years ago I raised money for Nightsafe by sleeping out on the streets of Blackburn with my mum and sister.

Seeing the huge difference this has made to young people’s lives has encouraged me to carry on supporting Nightsafe which is an amazing charity set up to support homeless people aged 16-24 years. It is a small locally based charity in Blackburn providing holistic services to homeless and vulnerable young people.

I will be 16 years old in October and to mark the occasion I plan to raise lots of money for Nightsafe by completing my first skydive!

I am very nervous and the more money I can raise the more encouragement you will give me to make that leap out of the plane!

Thank you for reading and any donation no matter how small will help towards my target!

Without the help of our supporters, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

Thank you to all our #NightsafeHeroes.
