Swindon based company npower and associates Lowri Beck have offered up 6 mad people to jump for charity. The beneficiary from the npower contingent is to be Macmillan Cancer Support and the company has promised to match our total sponsorship £ for £. So its a double whammy for Macmillan.
The jump will take place from Langar Airfield, Nottingham on 29th August (weather conditions permitting). Each jumper will be strapped to a member of the Red Devils Parachute Display Team, exiting the aircraft at approx. 13,000ft (2 miles), with a freefall at 100-120mph for 40secs, followed by 5 minutes under canopy before making an extremely soft landing on terra firma.
The npower contingent from around the country are:
Steve Kingston (Squadron Leader for the day) – Swindon
Amy Sidebottom – Worcester
Hayley Hitchin – Worcester
John Robson – Leeds
Nicola Farley-Jones – Leeds
Gemma Hunt – Leeds
Donations can be made at www.justgiving.com/displayteam
Alternatively, call Steve Kingston on 07920 833040 (daytime) or 01793 721144 (evening).
• Steve has previously undertaken a skydive with the Red Devils – which he admits makes him the maddest of the bunch as he already know how terrifying the ordeal can be. But he's not telling any of the others.
