Since Furnley House announced Alex's Wish as our chosen charity, many of our staff have been busy finding inventive and creative ways to raise funds for this fantastic cause.

Myself and John Woolhouse decided we had to grasp the challenge with both hands and after very little debate throwing ourselves out of a plane at a ridiculous height seemed the most obvious answer!

Personally I will find this extremely challenging due to my fear of heights, but that's something I'll conquer for an amazing cause.

We both have a goal of £500 each and any donations would be greatly appreciated.

Sky Dive For Alex's Wish

The Skydive will take place from 10,000 to 12,000 feet - and sometimes even higher. After exiting the aircraft I will freefall until the Instructor opens the main parachute at about 5,000 feet. We will then spend 30 seconds in freefall and reach a speed of around 120 miles per hour!

Well done Gordon - I don’t know if you should be more nervous of the sky dive or having John chasing after you at 13000 ft - hats off to you
