I currently hold two H.A.L.O. Skydiving World Records - as the first Mayor in the World and oldest person in the World, at the age of 80, to tandem skydive from 30,000' 
High Altitude Low Opening - is used by special forces to drop unseen behind enemy lines. It entails free falling at 300mph for over 2 minutes.
I am going to return to the only place in the world licenced to lay it on for civilians - Memphis, Tennessee - all at my own expense.


Event details


I am raising funds to increase opening nights of Local Youth Clubs.
The Youth Clubs in Redhill, Merstham and Horley provide a safe haven for young people in need but these fantastic facilities are closed 4 to 5 nights a week.
The cost to open one night a week per year, is a mere £6000.
With a two year project, I want to raise the funds so these Youth Clubs can be open more nights a week to enable young people to access the services and support they so desperately need.
Here are some quotes from some of the young people:
“If they are on the streets doing drugs they are going to get arrested, they’re going to get into trouble, but with support from a youth club we can avoid stuff like this and progress” 
“I just think this youth club means a lot to me because it is just there - it’s helped me as a person and helped me build my confidence - it’s helped me a lot.”
“There is nothing judgemental, it’s not about expertise, it’s a bit of fun and to explore your talents as well”

Please help the Young People in your Community by donating generously.
