Indira prepares for sponsored skydive in aid of Vista
Indira Joshi, 56, is preparing to take part in a sponsored skydive in aid of Vista. She is aiming to raise £2,000 in memory of her Mother-in-law.
She said “Vista is a charity close to my heart. My Mother-in-law was severely sight impaired - as she lost her sight, she was no longer able to see her grandchildren, which was very difficult for us all to witness. However her strength was inspirational and could be seen flowing through our family.”
“I now work for Vista as a Community Support Worker, helping people with sensory loss to remain as independent as possible. I love the work we do, and have seen for myself the difference we can make to people’s lives.”
Taking place in December, Indira’s skydive will involve jumping out of a plane from 13,000 feet. She said “I’m a bit scared but I know it will be an unforgettable experience – the views will be incredible, and it feels good to raise funds for such a worthy cause.”
Vista is the leading local sight loss charity in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. As well as rehabilitation, residential homes, social groups and befriending services, Vista provides specialist services for people with learning disabilities, dementia and dual sensory impairment.
