Morgan Phillips, who works as a Carer at our Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) office will be doing a skydive on April 19 in aid of Papyrus UK, which is a young person’s suicide prevention charity.
Twenty-year-old Morgan said: “This will be the first skydive I have ever done and I am already feeling a little nervous about it. I was initially going to be doing the skydive in 2017 but I wasn’t mentally ready for it, so rearranged for this year. It is for such a worthwhile cause, which is getting me through the nerves.
“I have chosen Papyrus UK as I lost my cousin to suicide in 2017. The charity aims to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives and I would like to raise as much money as possible to help with its ongoing work.”
Suicide is the biggest killer of young people, male and female, under 35-years-old, in the UK.
The charity’s vision is for a society which speaks openly about suicide and has the resources to help young people who may have suicidal thoughts.
Morgan will be taking part in the skydive at Swansea airport on Friday, April 19, 2019 and is already fundraising for it via https://goo.gl/JZmirt.
Sarah Williams, our Registered Manager at RCT, said: “It is great to see our staff members going above and beyond and doing their bit for worthwhile causes in their spare time. We’re encouraging our staff and the public to get behind Morgan and sponsor him if they can.”
