An Edzell woman is to planning to take to the skies to celebrate her 30th birthday.

Debbie Farquharson turns 30 in July and has created a bucket list, which includes a sky dive that she’s hoping to turn into a fundraising event

She explained: “I’m dreading turning 30 years old so I made a bucket list for myself.

‘‘One of the activities on my bucket list is to do a skydive.

“I decided to turn this into a fundraiser and raise much needed funds for Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.”

Debbie is doing her sky dive on August 16 in St Andrews, but is also planning more activities to raise cash.

She explained: “I aim to raise as much as possible and will be doing mini fundraisers such as a coffee morning to add to my fundraising total.”

Her first mini fundraiser, a coffee afternoon and cake sale, takes place on Sunday, June 28, in Edzell Church Hall from 2 to 4pm.

Dicusssion her reasons for picking the Scotland’ Charity Air Ambulance, Debbie said: “I chose Scotland’s charity air ambulance as living rural outside Edzell and working up in Glenesk, the air ambulance can reach more rural locations in which an ambulance cannot.

“Anyone who wishes to donate can do so safely and directly to Scotland’s charity air ambulance on www.justgiving.com/Debs-85 or text the amount then DEBF85 to 70070.”

Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) was formed in 2012 and launched our helicopter air ambulance in May 2013 to assist the Scottish Air Ambulance Service (SAAS) to deliver front-line care to time-critical emergencies across Scotland.
