“Because we all work so closely with Wakefield Street Kitchen, we get to see all the amazing work they do.

“We’ve really wanted to do something to show some appreciation and help them raise the funds they need to operate.

“I can’t explain how wonderful and professional the street kitchen team are, they make such a massive impact on the communities of Wakefield, especially those on a low income and those who’ve lost their jobs.

“We want to raise our target and get their message out there, hopefully we can get their name out there to help feed the vulnerable.”

Emma raises funds for the Wakefield Street Kitchen with her friends in an initiative called Packed With Hope.

And Lee and Sean work for Bargain Waste Disposal, a service that offers value waste removal services in Wakefield and the surrounding areas.

The jump will take place on Friday, May 28 at Skydive GB.
