15th June 2013 saw a nervous group of YDEF volunteers assemble at an airfield just outside Nottingham for a skydive to raise funds and awareness for Diabetes UK.

Milan (YDEF Chair) had suggested the challenge earlier this year, in support of Diabetes Awareness Week.  He was joined by Kelly from the committee, along with 5 brave supporters, who all completed their skydives after a long day battling with adverse weather conditions.  We’re delighted to report that everyone survived to tell the tale, and that we have raised well over £5,500 for Diabetes UK.  It’s not too late to sponsor us – Milan’s donation page is http://www.diabeteschallenge.org.uk/challenge/milanpiya-ydefskydivefordiabetesuk and Kelly’s is http://www.diabeteschallenge.org.uk/challenge/kellycheer-ydefskydivefordiabetesuk.  A huge thanks to those who joined us, and also everyone who donated.  Any suggestions for the next YDEF Challenge would be welcome!
