A BRAVE teaching assistant and former air hostess will be taking to the skies during a daring wing walk to raise funds for Droitwich’s Chawson First School where she works.
Ruth Llewellyn wants to give something back to the school as a thank you for all it has done in the past 18 months, during the pandemic.
She said: “As a parent as well, Chawson has helped keep me sane over the past months.
“I remember those nights where Government announcements came last minute and how fast the staff turned it around, giving nervously waiting parents quick clear information.
“I also remember the care they have given to each and every keyworker child, the love and work they put into all those home learning videos and the smiles they gave to each and every child on their return into school.”
She added, having seen all the hard work put in by everyone at the school every day, she was proud to be part of a fantastic team.”
Ruth has always loved planes and, as well as her work as an air hostess, once flew a small two-seater plane.
“This is something new for me, but if this year has taught me anything, you never know where life may take you, – grab opportunities when you can.”
She will be supported by her husband Adam who works at the Worcestershire Royal Hospital.
The funds will be split between Chawson First School and the Worcester Acute Hospitals Charity Trust.
Ruth has set herself a target of £1,000 and is already up to almost £300.
