Steve aims to take a leap for Prospect
3:10pm Wednesday 6th April 2011 in News
WHEN a football injury put paid to a fundraising Kilimanjaro climb for Steve Jordan, he came back twice as strong.
Steve, 28, of Haydon End, was set to raise £5,000 for Prospect Hospice from the climb, which was scheduled for this October. But after injuring both his ankles, the climb was called off. He has now set himself the challenge of raising £10,000 in 2011 and has organised a Crazy Netball Tournament in May, a skydive, football tournament and golfing competition.
“I decided that I would still raise the money, but I would double it,” he said.
“It was quite gutting, but the way I saw it was, there are a lot of people worse off than me.
“I spent a day at the hospice when I was at my previous job as it was our chosen charity and I can’t put it in to words quite what they do for people.
The netball tournament takes place on May 15 at Dorcan Sports Centre and will involve 32 teams taking part in pool matches, followed by a knockout competition with medals for the winners and runners up.
Steve will also be throwing himself out of a plane at Redlands airfield to boost his total, which he is confident of reaching by December.
The netball tournament is open to players aged 16 and over who must be England Netball Affiliated, and will cost £40 per team. For further information contact Steve on 07921 023114 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
