Jamie & 'Crew' Charity Skydive For Baby Hospice
U.K. Subs drummer Jamie Oliver is organising a charity skydiving day with his mum and all of the bar staff at the Crew/Queen's Hall music venue in Nuneaton, Warwickshire.
The event will raise money for Zoë's Place, which is a 'local' Baby Hospice based in Coventry.
Zoë's Place is an independent registered Charity providing palliative, respite and end of life care to babies and infants aged from birth to 5 years suffering from life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. Compassionate care is at the heart of Zoë's Place's philosophy and this crucial care is provided to all who access their facilities irrespective of their religious beliefs, colour, race, culture or gender, and there is no charge to the families who use this amazing service.
Jamie, along with ten others will be doing a group skydiving day in March in order to help Zoë's Place open up 2 of their 6 cot rooms which are currently not operating due to lack of funds.
This is an amzing cause to which we hope U.K. Subs fans worldwide can now help by sponsoring Jamie's fundraising plan of action for this incredibly important charity.
Any donation/sponsorship will be gratefully welcomed...

This is what Jamie had to say about the fundraising event...
"On March 2nd (weather permitting) 11 of us will take to the skies and jump out of a perfectly good plane at around 13,000 feet and plummet towards the earth at around 125mph. It must be noted that my nine good friends and my mum have never done this before, so to get all of them on board is pretty damned impressive.
This is a very worthy and noble cause and we would appreciate your support in any way, shape or form. Whatever you can do or spare will be warmly welcomed and will go towards improving the living conditions of many children, many of whom will not make it past infancy.
We have a page at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/thecrewbarskydivers where you can help us to support this most excellent of causes.
