Wing-walk bravery for CLIC Sargent

Sherborne Preparatory School housemistress, Ginny Shambarla, wing walked on an old Tiger Moth to raise money for children and young children with cancer. 

Wing-walk bravery for CLIC Sargent

Ginny, from Sherborne, Dorset decided to do the stunt for CLIC Sargent following a gift given to her from parents and students at her previous school, Knighton House.

Ginny chose to support CLIC Sargent due her 30 year long career working with children and it being a charity close to her heart.

Take off!

Taking off from Compton Abbas airfield, Ginny was strapped into place for the flight which enabled her to reach speeds of up to 100 miles per hour and gave her some fantastic views of the Dorset countryside.

Children, parents and staff from both schools joined Ginny at the airfield to support her bravery on the day and raise funds to support children and young people with cancer.

Ginny said: “The flight was incredible! I don’t think I really knew what to expect, but I loved every minute.”

Being able to use such an incredible gift to raise money for a fantastic cause made it all the more meaningful.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Joy Morley said: “I think what Ginny has done is fantastic, and really puts the fun in fundraising.

"The fact that Ginny choose to do the stunt on behalf of CLIC Sargent is marvellous, and is greatly appreciated."
