OCTOBER 2015

Gordon Rigg has been flying hang gliders for decades and is multiple times British Champion. His mother had always wanted to have a go, so for her 77th birthday, Gordon brought her to Airways to fly tandem with Judy Leden.  He flew alongside his mother and made this lovely film of them flying together.

Post by Judy Leden:

I had the enormous pleasure of hang gliding with Jayne Snell. Jayne came to see me in hospital when I was donating stem cells (I had joined the Delete Blood Cancer UK register and had been matched with a cancer sufferer), showing me what a massive difference a transplant can make. She was diagnosed with blood cancer in 2011 and would have died had it not been for a stem cell transplant from an anonymous donor. She has just celebrated her third year post transplant, and she is fit and well.  We celebrated her 3rd "birthday" by hang gliding together, raising money and awareness for Stem Cell Donation.
It is an amazing treatment and has a real chance of saving lives.
