READING FC Women’s captain Natasha Harding has raised almost £1,500 for three charities ahead of a future skydive.
The Reading and Wales midfielder will be donating to Children with Cancer, Rihanna’s swing in Swansea and the Geoff Smith Foundation.
Harding wrote on her GoFundMe page: “I kindly got given a birthday present last year for my 30th by my closest friends.
“That ‘present’ was a sky dive. So instead of me jumping out of a plane so my friends would enjoy it. I thought I would do it for some great causes.
“I will be doing it for a number of charities that are close to those that mean a lot to me.
“The charities will be Children with Cancer, Rihanna’s swing in Swansea, The Geoff Smith Foundation (providing care for those affected by MS, MND).
“If you could kindly donate and help me help them it would be greatly appreciated by us all.”
The target of £1,500 has almost been reached and was at £1,431 as we went to press.
Harding, who was given the Reading captaincy at the start of the 2019/20 season, said on Twitter: “I know as people we are all donating to amazing causes right now. These charities will undoubtedly appreciate any little help they get
“When it is safe to do so, I will be throwing my self out of a plane to raise money for these incredible charities that help so many families.”
