Magherafelt businesswoman Caoimhe O’Kane, took on a personal challenge to celebrate her 1st year in business.

She took to the skies and completed a tandem skydive from 13,000 feet for TinyLife, Northern Ireland’s premature baby charity.

Caoimhe, who owns Papa J’s Wood Fired Pizza Co said: “I wanted to mark my 1st year in business and take on a personal challenge to support a local charity at the same time. TinyLife is a charity close to my heart and they provide fantastic services to local families who have experienced premature birth.”

The jump took place at the end of June at the Wild Geese Skydive Centre in Garvagh and thanks to the support she received from friends & family she has raised a fantastic £564.89 for tiny babies locally.

TinyLife, formerly NIMBA, provides emotional and practical support to the families of premature and sick babies across Northern Ireland through its raft of Family Support Services. Every day in Northern Ireland 7 babies are born too soon, some arriving as early as 24 weeks and weighing as little as 1lb.
