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. ;)

Good luck John. You must be mad as I couldn't possibly jump out of a plane even with a parachute. You're supporting a great cause so I am happy to donate and help you exceed your target.

Well done Jon. My Mum was one of Willow woods first patients. Amazing place. We continue to support them but as you talk to me daily on my commute I owe this to you x
