Hiya - I'm Jon, I'm the newsreader on the breakfast show on Revolution 96.2.

Somehow, I've found myself raising funds for Willow Wood Hospice by jumping out of a plane at 15,000feet.

Event details

Tandem Skydive

On 29th April, I was strapped to another warm body and jumped from a plane at a height of 15,000ft in the air.  The experience was incredible - and if you get the chance to do it for a charity of your choice - do it!

I've been raising 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%.

The response I've had on the radio has been incredible - and many thanks for the generous donations you've made.  You can still sponsor me until the end of May.. and feel free to take a look at the video here >>
