Laura overcomes fear of heights to skydive for charity

The Micro and Anophthalmic Children’s Society (MACS) is a volunteer-run charity that supports families of children born either without eyes or with under developed eyes and is a cause that is close to the hearts of Cattedown Wharves employees.

Laura Eggins, the daughter of wharf operative Dave Eggins, was born with Coloboma and Microphalima; conditions which affect her eye sight. Despite this – and her fear of heights – Laura bravely took part in a fundraising skydive back in September and is a dedicated fundraiser and supporter of the charity.

“MACS is really important to me. They have supported me and my family during my life and I would like to give something back.”

Laura would like to thank employees for their continued support. The sponsored skydive was one of several events that the Cattedown Wharves team enjoys fundraising for throughout the year. To find out more about the work of MACS or to support the charity directly, visit www.macs.org.uk.
