Rye Town’s Luke Willis is brushing up on his diving technique. No, we are not talking about diving on the football pitch. He is preparing to sky dive, on May 12 for Charity For Kids that supports disabled and ill children in Hastings and the surrounding areas.
Luke decided to choose Charity For Kids with his daughter Ellissia as this charity has helped her cousin who has spina bifida, providing her with a wheelchair and a special trike. You can see this amazing little girl’s story on Facebook .
Luke has received £55 in donation so far, therefore he still has a fair way to go to reach his target of £500.
