Thanks to all from Denise Stear

High above the beautiful Cotswolds, frothy white clouds scudding across a bright sky, a patchwork of fields studded with mellow stone houses below, tied to the outside, yes the outside, of a plane its engines drumming beneath me, yelling at the top of my voice, “I can’t believe I am doing this!” Wing walking is sheer, wonderful, awe- inspiring lunacy. My face literally flapping, air rushing towards me as we bank round to the right and then, stomach lurching, into a nose dive. It was over all too soon, but the sense of exhilaration will remain with me for a very long time. Katharine House Hospice is the most amazing place, giving wonderful care to people at their most vulnerable.

Denise Stear – Wing walking for Katharine House Hospice

On the 1st of October I will be wing walking for Katharine House Hospice - Banbury because it provides support to patients and their families. When I first heard about wing walking I had a moment of madness where I thought 'I could do that'! My family were incredulous...I can't even go on waltzers at the fair.  Katherine House provides tremendous support to patients and their families. In the last few years I have experienced serious illness myself. I know the power of the support that was given to me by my wonderful friends and family and the professionals who worked hard to get me back to health.  I know I'll be terrified, but I hope exhilarated too. I am
