Letter - Charity skydive was exhilarating

On April 21 I successfully completed a skydive from 15,000 feet. It was an amazing and exhilarating experience, one I will never forget.

While I paid for the jump myself I took the opportunity of collecting sponsors for charity (thanks to Hayley Vaughan-Birch for giving me the idea).

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful people who sponsored me to do the skydive and I am pleased to say that I raised £1,123.40 which is to be split between Prostate Cancer (in memory of my Dad) & the British Legion (Hemsworth Branch).

I will present a cheque for £560.00 to the British Legion at their branch meeting at the beginning of May and the remainder will be sent to Prostate Cancer.

From the bottom of my heart I thank all my sponsors for their generosity.
