Marie Curie Cancer Care is looking for 60 dare devils to face their fears and throw themselves from a plane, to celebrate 60 years of providing Marie Curie nursing care to terminally ill cancer patients.
Pictured is fundraising manager Clair Cusack, who did a tandem skydive along with her sister and best friend and raised over £300 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Clair said: “The jump was a fantastic experience! The view from up above the clouds as you leap from the plane is out of this world! We loved every minute of it and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who has ever wanted to do one to go ahead and book it now! Celebrate the diamond anniversary in style, you won’t regret it!”
There are two types of jumps available – a ‘Tandem Skydive’ from 10,000 feet attached to a professional instructor and a ‘Static Line’ jump which is performed solo from up to 3,000 feet – and you can jump from any one of 23 British Parachute Associates approved airfields across the UK. No experience is necessary as all training is given.
All monies raised people taking up the challenge will be used to support the local Marie Curie Cancer Care Nursing Service, ensuring terminally ill cancer patients in our local community have the choice to die at home surrounded by their family and loved ones.
So if you would like to make a thrilling skydive from 10,000 feet or an exhilarating solo jump from up to 3,000 feet call Clair on 0117 9247275.
