Ipswich: Zoe’s set to take a dive for charity

AN INTREPID fundraiser is preparing to take a leap of faith in aid of a charity supporting young people.

Zoe Sparkes will be tackling a skydive on October 21 in aid of Suffolk Young People’s Health Project (4YP).

The 22-year-old, of Bramford Road, decided to take on the dive to thank the charity for the help it gave her.

She said: “I have chosen 4YP as they have provided support to me over the last three years and have helped me overcome the obstacles I was faced with.

“They spent valuable time listening and offering advice and discussing how I can achieve things in life.

“It has given me a new direction in life and words cannot describe how much I have learned about myself with the help of 4YP.”

The charity, based in Lower Brook Street, aims to improve the health and well-being of 12 to 25 year olds. “Without 4YP, I would still have no idea about my future or goals in life and would still be focusing on my past,” Zoe said.
