Tasha is taking on the challenge of 12,000ft skydive to jump with the Tigers in aid of the JTYAF in August.
Tasha is the owner of Cortex Hair Design in Southbourne and was a classmate of John's at school.
Here's her story:
"I went to school with John Thornton, when he was tragically killed in 2008 aged just 22, it was the worst news ever. Out of this tragedy came a fantastic charity, engineered and steered by Johns family the charity has grown and grown, not only do they do such brilliant things but if your lucky enough to come into contact with Pete, Linda and Ian you'll realise why so many people want to be a part of and help the JTYAF. There such welcoming, focused and down to earth people, they give you a small glance at the kind of man John was. If jumping out of a plane can help in any way then so be it....
Bring it on :)!"
