81 y/o scientologist granny jumps out of plane for Narconon

I know the scientology front group Narconon UK so desperately needs the money but... :eek:

Grandmother leaps at chance to skydive

MOST 81-year-olds are quite happy to settle for a quiet life, but not Audrey Bennett.

The great-grandmother is getting ready to leap out of a plane for her first ever skydive.

.."I won't accept old age, so that's why I'm doing it. It's something I've always wanted to do. I'm really excited about it.

"Call it mad, indulgent, silly – I really don't care. All I know is that it will be challenging and fun," she said.

Audrey, who lives at Forest Lodge in Portland Road, will complete a tandem jump to fulfil a lifelong dream and raise money for a charity close to her heart.

The Zimbabwe-born thrill-seeker is raising money for Narconon, a drug rehabilitation and education programme.

She first came across the charity in South Africa, when its drug-free rehabilitation programme saved the life of the daughter of some close friends.

Since then Audrey has become a staunch supporter of the cause.

"Narconon is a very special charity to me and I want to raise the funds to help someone else," she said.

"It's a fantastic programme and can help someone start coming to life again. There are many, many people it has helped.

"I'm realising my personal dream in doing this parachute jump, so at the same time I want to help others realise their dream of a happy life free of drugs.

"The Narconon programme delivers that dream to thousands of addicts across the UK and the world, and deserves all the help and support I, or anyone, else can muster."

Audrey will complete the jump at Headcorn Aerodrome in Kent. A date is yet to be set.

She has been trying to keep the charity jump a secret from her family, including her six grandchildren, who are spread all over the world.

"It's fine. I'm very fit, I'm one of the lucky ones as I don't take any medication at all," she added.

Some of them might not be scientologists. Some of them might like to know really what they are donating to. The East Grinstead Courier & Observer should fuckingwell know if it did an ounce of research. But hey, Narconon is a still a registered UK "charity" /rolleyes/.... for the moment.
This month Narconon was pulled up by the UK's Advertising Standards Authority for misleading statements on its website. See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=38793
Also see the OCMB Narconon Exposed forum section for other serious developments and fail for Narconon in Canada, from ex-patient/staffer David Love: viewforum.php?f=12

“You are old. I do not want to stay in this decrepit body. Set me free. Please, do not open the parachute!!!”
