On 19th October, Jeremy Hayward from Liss, Hampshire will take part in a sponsored skydive, jumping 15,000 ft from a plane in aid of leading farm animal welfare charity Compassion in World Farming. His skydive was originally set to take place on 2nd October, which is World Farm Animal Day, but it was rescheduled due to inclement weather.
I am proud to be taking this big leap for such a noble cause, says Jeremy, who hopes to raise an incredible £1,500 with the support of his colleagues, friends and family. As I leave the aircraft at 15,000 feet, I will be spurred on by the thought of the billions of animals suffering from the cruelty of industrial agriculture.
Jeremy has been involved with the charity since it was founded in 1967, and has been a trustee since the 1980s.
It’s fantastic that Jeremy Hayward is taking on this huge challenge to help change the lives of farm animals, says Joy Elliott, Supporter Engagement Manager at Compassion. The money donated will support vital campaigns to end the caging, confinement, and suffering of animals on intensive farms around the world.
