skydiving challenge once upon a smile

On Friday 1st September, stars from music and television will be taking part in a 11,000ft skydive for ‘Once Upon a Smile’. The local bereavement charity supports families after the loss of a parent and/or child(ren) and it has recently been supporting families affected by the Manchester bomb.

Cheshire Housewives star and Once Upon a Smile patron, Leanne Brown, will be one of the celebrities taking on the challenge. Leanne decided to take part after attending the Grand Ball earlier this year and heard a mother talk about suddenly losing her daughter and how Once Upon a Smile supported her and her family.


Other stars taking part in the challenge are actors Michael Keogh, Nico Mirallegro, Reece Douglas and Britain’s Got Talent star Jay Kontzle.

Once Upon a Smile was co-founded by Daniel Jilling and Emmerdale star Danny Miller and recently celebrated its 6th Birthday with a host of well know faces wishing them happy birthday including Michelle Keegan, Phillip Schofield and Cheshire housewife Leanne Brown.  ( video attached)
