A jump for life
Comment Email Print
¬†Pro-life fundraising reached new heights at the weekend when campaigner Fiona Pinto parachute jumped from 10,000 feet over Cambridgeshire, in a bid to raise money for the Pro-Life Alliance. Fiona Pinto, former national chair of Student Life Net, went into freefall at over 120mph for over 40 seconds on July 6 - the Catholic Day for Life. She hopes to raise £250,000 for the PLA, which suffered expensive legal setbacks in the past year, losing cases against human cloning and censorship in the House of Lords. Fiona, who admits she is "absolutely terrified" of heights, said she felt she had to make the jump because the situation of the PLA is so grave. She said: "We are facing crippling court costs. We know it won't be easy to raise this money but we're convinced that with people pulling together we can eventually win the pro-life battle. " And she said she was given a great deal of support to make the jump: "For someone who would run a mile from a rollercoaster, I couldn't have done this without the encouragement of so many people who rang up or emailed." Donations should be sent to Fiona Pinto c/o Pro Life Alliance PO Box 13395, London SW3 6XE. Cheques should be made payable to ProLife Alliance.
