Story

Thanks for visiting - Read the below update......

On 6th August 2009, the world lost the best "ParaTropper" "Son" "Brother" "Uncle" "Nephew" "Cousin" and "Friend" Dale in the words of many was simply Amazing........ 

He was finally laid to rest on 26th August 2009, when his local town Redditch came to a stand still silence...everyone united together with one common thought.

The mark of such a man brought over a 1000 people to the town center, Police, Ambulance and Fire Brigade lined the streets with the sole intention of paying the respects, even parking wardens stopped issuing tickets and simply stopped in respect.

To continue the successful fundraising efforts previously achieved on the charity parachute jump we are attempting to complete the 3 Peaks Challenge in August 2011. As part of the challenge we will attempt to climb the 3 highest peaks in Scotland, England & Wales.

Starting at Ben Nevis we intend to complete the 25 miles walk, 10,000 feet climb & 450 miles drive in 36 hours!!

Training has already begun, the challenge we have set ourselves is very hard but not impossible. Your support will make it all worthwhile!
