***NEWSFLASH*** Due to bad weather, and me not wanting to die, we have rescheduled the jump to the 18th October. ***NEWSFLASH***

Let's get this straight, I'm never going to look as cool as the guy in the photo doing this!

As a kid I was absolutely​ terrified of heights. I got stuck up a small tree and almost died from a heart attack! Sooo, I thought jumping out of a plane would be a brilliant idea!

I am raising funds for Year Here​, a pioneering social business​. Launched in 2013, Year Here is a postgraduate course in social innovation based in London, designed to cultivate entrepreneurial approaches to entrenched social problems.

Year Here Fellows start by spending 5 months volunteering in care homes, homeless hostels and youth services across London where they work directly with service users and lead ‘innovation projects’ that aim to leave a legacy​ and pave the way for future innovations​. Fellows ​then go on to run a community engagement project for a local council or housing association client​ before develop​ing​ their own social venture idea from scratch.

We will be raising funds for ​Year Here's incubator phase, where Fellows are supported by entrepreneurs and experts to rapidly develop and test their ideas for social change. Many of these seeds grow into successful social businesses and charities beyond the programme.

This fits perfectly into Forward3D's fail fast, agile work practice. We feel driven to contribute to the growth of a steady stream of new ventures in London that we can support with our digital marketing expertise in the future.

In the last couple of years, ​the Year Here incubator has​ launched​ a raft of​ social ventures in fields as diverse as ethical fashion, social design, homelessness and educational inequality. They've been recognised as Shackleton Leaders, Ashoka Changemakers, New Radicals and Housing Excellence​ ​Award Winners.

I’m genuinely scared of any high taller than a ladder – and I’m about to throw myself out of an airplane! So stick your hand in your pocket, it’s for a good cause, plus you’ll get the satisfaction of knowing knowing I’ll be screaming and in tears the whole way down!
