PDP Services’ Tom Fairbrother to do 160ft O2 Bungee Jump
PDP Services’ Technical Director, Tom Fairbrother, will be braving the grand heights of the famous O2 in Greenwich to do a 160ft bungee jump.
Tom won’t be doing this just for the thrill – he’s hoping to raise funds for The Evelina Children’s Heart Organisation (ECHO).
ECHO is a charity very close Tom’s heart. Tom and Rebecca’s son Lewis was born in 2014 with an undiagnosed heart defect and had to undergo unexpected complex heart surgery at just five months old. Without the surgery and the support from the Evelina Children’s Heart Organisation he wouldn’t be the happy and outgoing child he is today.
Tom Fairbrother said: ‘ECHO supports families in so many ways; whether you are expecting a baby with a heart defect, you have a child who has got to undergo major heart surgery, you are a teenager who has had heart surgery as a child or whether you are a family who has lost a child – they are there for you every step of the way.’
The money raised by Tom’s bungee jump will go towards the different channels ECHO uses to help support the children and families, including a Cardiac Family Support Service, items of necessary equipment needed for the hospital or home that cannot be funded by the NHS, parent-to-parent support, online forum, antenatal classes, music therapist, comfort packs, toys and crafts, emergency accommodation, bereavement support and events.
