Charity skydive

Hawsons continue to support and fundraise for local charities as Aimee Smith and Dalia Qarawi threw themselves out of their comfort zones for the Paediatrics Department at Northampton General Hospital. The charity skydive took place on 19 September 2021 at the Hinton Airfield, where the pair descended 13,000ft.

Aimee said, “This was the opportunity of a lifetime, I haven’t stopped speaking about it since the day. I loved every second, from the freefall to taking in all of my surroundings once the parachute was pulled, to the support I felt from the Northamptonshire Health Charity, family, and work colleagues who came to cheer us on on the day!”

Dalia and Aimee felt the experience was incredible and doubled their fundraising target on their Just Giving page.

Dalia said, “The skydive was something I’d never of chosen to do myself, but I am so glad I threw myself in at the deep end, to be able to say you have jumped 13,000ft out of a plane is something I never thought I’d be able to do. You didn’t even have time to think about what was going to happen until it did, which was all the more exciting!”
