To raise money for Thyroid UK I am going to jump out of a perfectly good Aeroplane, strapped to somebody I don't know under a large bedsheet.

Hiya my faithful fans, the jump went ahead as planned, a gentle plummet from 13,000 ft and a perfect landing.Thank you for your donations added together with all the cash donations I should be well over my £400 target so a big thank you to all who donated for a very good cause. The picture is the after landing celebrations with another Jumper called Paulo who was raising money for Diabetes UK.once again thank you and you can still donate up until September.Cheers, Dave.

Event details

Tandem Parachute Jump

So to raise money on the 11th of June 2016 I will strap myself to somebody I have only met a few hours beforehand and then jump out of a perfectly serviceable Aeroplane and float earthwards beneath a large silk sheet.All you have to do is give me loads of money. I need to raise at least £400 and more would be better obviously.Its a great cause, during the time we thought Tricia had a Thyroid problem it became clear that the Medical establishment fails miserably on all fronts with this condition and Thyroid UK helps sufferers and fights the system to get better treatment for the many people it affects. As you all know I love a fight with the system!!Thyroid diseases have probably affected at least one person you know.Please give generously and if I survive I may buy you a pint when I see you in the pub.Dave.
