Frazer Cuttle, 17, will be skydiving next month with the hope of raising £2,000 for The Prince of Wales Hospice in memory of his mum, Joanne, who passed away at the hospice earlier this year, aged 51.

Frazer said: “The love, care and attention she received was exceptional, nothing was ever too much for any member of staff.

“So I have decided to do this jump to raise as much as I can as a thank you for the Prince of Wales Hospice for everything they did for my mum and my family.”

Frazer’s 10,000ft skydive will take place on November 14 at GB skydive, near Bridlington.

His sister, Roberta said: “Mum was always so positive and vivacious, everyone said how she’d light up a room with her smile and presence.

“Mum’s always taught us that if you put your mind to something, you can do anything, her two mottos were ‘believe and achieve’ and ‘mind over matter’.

“The idea of a skydive has always scared Frazer, he thought he could never do it - but now, the jump just seems like the perfect thing to do.

"The hospice took excellent care of mum, they were so respectful of our family, even during such a difficult time in lockdown.

“They allocated a time so everybody could see her, and understood the balance required to help the family and support us all through my Mum’s passing.

“They took such good care of her, we walked away knowing she was well looked after.”
