Fantastic Fundraising - Chris Meek, daredevil dad to Darcey and Jocelyn, bravely took to the skies over Strathallan in November and carried out a static line parachute jump in aid of Abernethy Playgroup.  He raised a whopping £1029.40 and the Playgroup would like to express a huge thank you to Chris for his extreme fundraising mission and wish him well on his next adventure.  

The children held their own jump for joy day during playgroup where they had great fun playing parachute and jumping games.
