Two daughters and a niece of a much-loved Louth man have teamed up to take part in a charity skydive to commemorate the first anniversary of his death.
Neil Borman died suddenly at the age of 50, on June 22 last year. He was a regular attendee at Cadwell Park, having been a season ticket holder for many years, and was well known in the area.
He would often be seen at Charlie’s Corner , and even bought himself a Mazda MX5 track car just two weeks before he passed away.
His daughters Rebecca, 22, and Victoria, 20, will be joining their cousin Laura Jayne Webster, 24, in a dramatic leap from 15,000 feet to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
The skydive will take place in Hibaldstow, near Brigg, on Saturday June 21. The trio chose to skydive with a hint of irony, as Neil passionately hated flying.
Together, the trio have raised over £1200 so far.
Neil’s niece Laura Jayne said: “I miss Uncle Neil loads, and I hope he is really proud of us.
“I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has made a donation already, and every little helps if people have a spare pound or two that they can donate.
“We have each paid £300 to take part in the skydive, so every penny raised through our fundraising will go directly to the British Heart Foundation.”
Neil’s daughter Victoria, a childminder, added: “We all miss dad lots and sadly he’s now got a grandson that he never met - my sister Natalie’s son, Rylie, who was born last July. He’ll also miss my daughter, Summer-Rose, growing up.”
