Gemma will be doing a wing-walk, a daredevil stunt first seen in the 1920’s. Wing-walking today isn’t so different and will see Gemma climb onto the top wing of a vintage biplane and be strapped into a specially-designed five-point harness. Once securely fastened, standing up and facing forwards, the plane will then taxi and take off. Once in the air, the plane will perform low-level fly pasts and Gemma will be feeling the wind in her face whilst her family wave her on from the ground!
She said, ‘I have plenty of reasons to be grateful for the amazing work that the NHS does, from my own cancer treatment to caring for my sons and my grandparents at different stages of their lives.
In the last year or so lots of us have shown our gratitude for the work that the NHS has done under incredibly trying circumstances and I want to do so again by raising funds for my local NHS Trust.
I’m certainly going to be outside my comfort zone standing on top of a plane as it takes off, but I am sure it pales into insignificance compared to the challenges that so many NHS workers have faced recently. If you are able to help me thank our amazing NHS please use the link below. Thank you.’

We are so proud of Gemma and know she will reach her target with the same great style and determination she shows in all she does.
Good Luck Gemma! Reach for the skies!
