Celebrating the birthday of Charles Wylie
We stand for everyone affected by dementia to find a cure


Jean has been coping with Alzheimer’s for nine years. It is a heart-breaking disease, making the victim’s existence more and more distressing, and impacting family and friends. Rather than receive any gifts for my 90th birthday in August I ask you to sponsor my Jump for Joy - a tandem parachute jump with the Red Devils, planned for 8 Sep 23. Although your gift will not benefit Jean, it will help to give future generations freedom from the same ordeal. I’m told that anyone reaching the age of 80 has a 50% chance of dementia. Is that you, or a loved one? It’s a horrible thought. Please be as generous as you feel you can be, and help to rid mankind of this terrible affliction. If you can, please pass this on on any medium. Let’s reach the world. We’ve smashed the £5K target and the £10K target. Gift Aid has taken us over £21,000. Bless you for your generosity. I’m hoping to post a video of the jump, which went well on the 8th September The free fall of 45 secs from 12,000 feet meant the chute opened at about 8,000, when I sang for Jean: ‘I’m on the top of the world, looking down on creation.’ It YeeeeHa‼️
