Hiya - I'm Jon, I'm the newsreader on the breakfast show on Revolution 96.2 with Elliot and Jackie.

Somehow, I've found myself raising funds for Willow Wood Hospice by jumping out of a plane at 10,000feet.

Event details

Tandem Skydive

On 29th April this year, I'll be strapped to another warm body and will jump from a plane 10,000ft in the air, and freefall at 120mph!  And then (hopefully) float to the ground, parachute billowing in the wind!

And it's all to help raise funds for Willow Wood Hospice in Ashton.

Anybody who's experienced the care and support of the staff at the Hospice will tell you how much the service means to them.  And the hospice relies on the local community for 75% of it's funding.

Yes, 75%.

I'd love for you to sponsor my jump - even if you just want to see my terrified face on the plane (yes, there will be pictures).

Anything you can afford will be really gratefully received - and thank you in advance. ;)

I’ll be there watching to applaud a safe landing or to ensure the life insurance policy gets put into action as your next of kin! Xxxx

I am sure that all will go well but if not I am more than happy to discuss your insurance requirements prior to you hurling yourself out of a perfectly serviceable aircraft. Always looking after your best interests..
