Update: so we've had to delay the jump twice now. While I'm waiting for this to happen, I've decided to add a bonus activity: I'm going to do a long (120-160km) bike ride. It's closer to the ground, for starters, and it"s less likely to be put off by the weather :)
Will be doing it on 29th/30th July.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Here's your opportunity to get me thrown out of a plane.
Now, you may be asking why on earth I'm doing this, and why Progress Theatre?
Progress Theatre is a self-governing, self-funding theatre group founded in 1946 and maintained by volunteers. As a registered charity, it is committed to promoting education in the performing arts as well as producing a programme of varied, interesting and challenging drama to the highest standard. It also takes part in various initiatives to support the local community. The theatre’s vibrant youth group gives young people an opportunity to develop new skills, meet people and grow in confidence, and in some cases, such as Kenneth Branagh, go on to have a successful career in the dramatic arts. The more recent outreach programme run by the Progress Theatre aims to raise awareness and support people with dementia in the local community. As this community theatre does not receive government funding, it is entirely reliant on volunteers and support from people like you, so thank you for your support tonight. Your contributions will go towards an initiative to fix the theatre’s car park which has been in need of maintenance for over 10 years.
