Story

TOP SECRET
It was just after 4.30 pm on Saturday afternoon. We were at 13,500 feet and had just levelled out after a smooth ascent. Suddenly word was sent from the squadron leader to prepare to jump behind enemy lines (i.e. over the border in Nottinghamshire). We went for it – out into the unknown. The wind buffeted my rather fetching blue and orange outfit (see pics) and it felt like the ack ack fire was coming from everywhere. But we made it down without a problem – mission accomplished, Biggles had landed!!
Hopefully you will be delighted to know that I completed the skydive without mishap this weekend. It was a a terrific experience and yes of course, I would like to go on and train to go solo, but I was told that you have to be under 55 to do that (age sometimes has its benefits!!)
For those of you who have already followed the links and donated to the Prostate Cancer Charity, I can’t thank you enough. You’ve already raised over £500 between you. For those of you who still wish to donate just follow the instructions – it doesn’t matter how much and you can donate anonymously if you want to.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

Once again many thanks to all my friends who have supported me so generously.
Over and out!
Biggles
