Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page

There are a few big (and silly) challenges ahead over the summer; in some cases scouting out routes and training for 2014 (more on these later);  but now for something different.  On Easter Monday at Dunkswell Airfield in Devon, I'll be doing a TANDEM SKYDIVE from 15,000ft.  We will skydive/freefall for 2 miles and then slow down as the parachute comes out.  The thought is, in equal measures, exhilarating and excruciating!  Simultaneously a first and a last (?) for me.  Sponsor me please...?

I'm raising money through Just Giving for Christian Aid who work with some of the poorest people in the world and help folk of all faiths and none to find life before death www.christianaid.org.uk

Thank you and God bless you.

Mike

Thank you everyone for helping me get over the £1000 mark! I just now need to jump. Pray for light winds so it can go ahead.

I'm nearly there at £1000! Help me reach that target, for Christian Aid!

With my knee finally recovered, I am back running, and training, which is great, but the hills are hard work!

Sorry, the skydive was postponed due to high winds. I'll let you know as soon as I have a new date.

Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. Christian Aid has a vision - an end to poverty - and we believe that vision can become a reality.
