12,000ft to 5,000ft at 120mph in 6 seconds or so....

If that sounds a little scary, believe me – it is!

In September last year I leaped out of a small plane doing a tandem skydive at 10,000ft for Cancer Research and raised £1,000. The first thing I said as I landed on solid ground, was “NEVER AGAIN!”

However, there is another cause that needs our help and so, with a feeling of fear, looking very grey, and stomach churning already, I was convinced to do another Tandem Sky Dive, but this one is from 12,000 feet. Now those that were with me on the original one will know what I went through to get myself to do it. Someone who doesn’t like planes, not great with enclosed spaces, and not 100% comfortable at heights and loves to be in control – I couldn’t of picked a better event to really push the boundaries of my comfort zone.

Now if you are like me and really wouldn’t want to do such a thing, please dig deep and show your support by visiting my fundraising page and give me some words of encouragement along with some much needed funds to help me raise funds for the Air Ambulance – by clicking here -

We wish to raise £2,500 as this is the average cost of a call out. As the government do not fund this vital service, they need the support to keep getting to the scene of an incident quickly to make a big difference in someone’s life. We don’t know what lies in our future, but I know for sure that if I was involved with a life threatening incident I would like them to turn up to help me or loved one.

Every little helps but can make such a difference, please support me…
