Flossie Donovan and Oksana Duval-Petryna, both of whom work at the Richard Desmond Children's Eye Centre at Moorfields, took the plunge to raise money for Moorfields Eye Charity with a breath taking sky dive last Saturday. Flossie and Oksana fell through the air from 12,000 feet, reaching over 120mph.
Both Flossie and Oksana have worked for Moorfields for over seven years and have seen what Moorfields can do for patients first hand. Flossie has an even more personal relationship with the hospital, as she has been a patient at Moorfields herself since she was six years old. She says:
“Eyesight is something we all take for granted and the work that Moorfields does in researching conditions and their treatment is truly amazing. Some of the current treatments did not even exist when my first visit to the hospital took place! Please help and support me in raising vital funds for Moorfields.”
Flossie is a big supporter of Moorfields Eye Charity and has participated in all three Eye to Eye walks, as well as taking on the ArcelorMittal Orbit abseil challenge twice - in 2016 2017.
Flossie is a play specialist and Oksana is a health care assistant (HCA), and we’re very grateful to both of them for their support and fundraising efforts. After they landed with two feet on the ground, they wanted to go again! They have raised an amazing £1236.25 so far and if you can support them in any way they will be very appreciative.
Well done Flossie and Oksana
