TAKE THE PLUNGE
Thrill seekers across Leicestershire are being asked to parachute out of a plane at 10,000 feet in aid of leading children's charity NCH.
NCH is looking for 30 jumpers to take part in The Big Jump on Saturday 6th September at Langar airfield in Nottingham to help raise money for local projects.
The 120mph tandem skydive is free for all jumpers who raise £395 or more in sponsorship money. No previous experience is necessary as full training is given on the day.
Rebecca Ash, NCH fundraiser for East Midlands says: "This exhilarating event is not for the faint hearted but it always proves to be very popular. Everyone who has done it for us in the past has enjoyed the experience immensely and said that they want to go straight back up and jump again.
"It's a really fun way to raise money for the thousands of vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people supported by NCH in the East Midlands."
Local NCH services include Leicester New Start Families, which works with families at risk of losing their homes because of anti-social behaviour (ASB), Leicester Children's Fund which works with disadvantaged five to thirteen year olds and Children Centres in Braunstone, Highfields and St Matthews which work to give children up to the age of four the very best start in life through helping and supporting them and their families
