Two guests Skydive from Hilbaldstow for Cancer Charity & World Record


04 August 2015

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH ………….for helping me to take part and for helping a great charity with all your donations and sponsorship. In total my friend Gillian and I handed in £2366.10 and people are still donating.
 
I have to say that I was so proud to take part in something as special as the Skydive for Stephen. We not only met his family and some of the Board of Teenage Cancer Trust but we were touched by the stories of the teenagers that have been helped. The Trust supports the youngsters through things like the “Sense of Tumour” conferences that it runs which allow the teenagers to get together with other young cancer sufferers, learn about their diseases, learn about and get support with workshops for things like body image and mental health.
 
It is amazing what the Trust does and will continue to do with the help of the monies from everyone who helped us &  that took part in the skydive. By 3pm we had beaten the previous world record for tandem skydives of 286 people  in one day from same place by one person and had raised £145,000. By close of day at 8pm the number of tandem divers was 403 so we not only beat the previous record but we trounced it and set a new one!! I don’t know the official amount raised as monies are still coming in but it will no doubt be fabulous!!!
 
On a personal note, I loved the jump - especially the free falling part and I would recommend it to anyone to try!
 
So all that remains for me to say is  thank you all very much from the heart!!!
 
From one very happy & proud Jane
