Saturday 18th June is the day that I shall quietly make my way into an aeroplane and climb to about 12000 feet. Then, with no fear whatsoever, I shall exit the aircraft through a door on the side, strapped to someone who has done it before, and hope very much that the parachute opens. But not immediately. 30 seconds of freefall comes first, during which speeds of 140mph should be reached in a downward direction, and then the parachute should open to slow us down and bring us safely back to terra firma.
So, I’m looking for sponsorship please. All, and I mean all of the proceeds (I’m funding this myself) will be divided between St John’s Hospice, Moggerhanger and the Little Paxton Church for Tomorrow Project. St John’s Hospice is the local palliative care provider for the region, and is well known for the wonderful care its staff provide to both patients and their relatives. The Church for Tomorrow Project aims to raise £350,000 to refurbish St James’ Church, its bells, clock, pews and vestry area so that the Church can appeal to a wider community of all ages.
To sponsor me, please call me during office hours on (01480) 471001.
We can really make a difference here, so thank you in advance for your generous donations.
