There are many good causes about, but not many that touch you like the plight of Carrieanne. Here is a small plea from a fellow Latics fan, Simon Gregory, who is going to do a sponsored Skydive to help raise funds for this remarkable young girl, please read on to see what he has to say.

So the time has come and We had this amazing idea that we are going to conquer our fear of heights and do a skydive for an amazing little girl called carrieanne, who is 9 years old, she has poorly muscles and often has too take rests whilst her sisters play on their bikes as she gets tired, she has to attend lots of hospital appointments and hates them taking her blood all time :(. So me and paul decided to do the skydive which would, raise more money for this wonderful charity, and because we both have connections to the Hartwood Hall in Chorley we have named ourselves Team Hartwood for the skydive.

Like us Carrieanne loves Wigan Athletic something else that makes this little girl even more amazing and enabling us to conquer a fear and raise money for her charity carrie on fighting, which will hopefully raise enough money for research into the form of MD carrieanne has.

Our skydive takes place on Saturday 1st March 2014.
