Flying high to support air ambulance

Wednesday 25th June 2014 – 2.30pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.


An NHS 111 (West Midlands) call centre worker is preparing to fly high in the name of charity whilst ensuring she has a wedding anniversary to remember.

Clinical Quality Improvement Advisor Natalie Neale, from Dudley, is preparing to take part in a daring skydive on Tuesday, July 1, when she will jump with the Red Devils from 10,000ft.

Natalie, will have an extra special reason to look forward to landing safely on the ground, as she is jumping on her wedding anniversary.

“I’m very excited about it and not nervous at all. The date coincides with my wedding anniversary so I hope the life insurance is paid up to date,” she joked.

Reflecting on why she has chosen to raise funds for the Air Ambulance, Natalie said: “It is a charity close to my heart as when I was a student nurse they allowed me to fly with them from Cosford and I always said I would like to pay them back one day, this is my chance.”
