Daniel Selcraig, Peterborough United’s head groundsman will be swapping the green, green grass of Posh for the blue, blue skies of the city when he takes part in a charity Sky Dive for Sue Ryder’s Thorpe Hall Hospice this bank holiday.
Daniel will be a familiar face to thousands of football fans on match days and was also responsible for ensuring the ABAX Stadium pitch was ready to accommodate the Elton John concert held last summer.
Speaking to ESP about his upcoming sky dive Daniel said:
“I was devastated to hear that Sue Ryder at Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough had their donation tin stolen off reception on Christmas Day 2017. How could someone stoop so low?
“I then learnt that the doors were only left open so that a grieving family could visit a relative that had sadly passed away.
“I decided that what better way to give something back to a remarkable charity than to throw myself out of a plane at 13,000 feet!
“I’ve never done a parachute jump before so I am slightly nervous but if I raise lots of money for them then it will all be worth it.
“I have personally paid for the jump so every penny raised through fundraising will go straight to Sue Ryder. The Sky Dive will take place on Monday May 7 at Sibson Airfield.”
Daniel’s set up a Just Giving page for anyone wishing to support his fundraising efforts at:
Everyone at ESP wishes Daniel all the very best for his sky dive and we look forward to seeing him back on the ground at Posh very soon.
