As Chief Officer of an organisation sometimes you have to walk the walk as well as talk the talk. ECHO is asking brave souls to raise money by jumping out of a plane and so I wanted to show willing and raise some funds for our fabulous charity.

I'd be really be grateful for any gift you give to support our participants, whether these are given to encourage me or to ensure that I can't back out!

Please note that I will be covering any costs associated with my jump and so all money pledged will go directly to support our participants.



Rain stops play

Well after a few days of heatwave and blue skies the jump day turns out to be wet and miserable and so the skydiving has been cancelled. 

Frustrating though this is it can't be helped. Good news I have rescheduled it for the 9th July, so hopefully not long to wait.

If any of you know a good sun dance save it for then!

Thank you everyone for your amazing generosity! So much so I've decided to up my total to see how close I can get to £900! It is only 11 days until the planned jump- so this is an ambitious total, but ECHO is an ambitious organisation so lets try to match that.

It is getting very real now- exciting and scary in equal measure

Thank you all once again

Wow- Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far- I am really pleased to have passed my initial target. With less than a month to go this is amazing! If you haven't supported me yet then there is still time!

Thank you!

A big thank you to everyone who has sponsored me so far- I am really pleased that I am not far off my initial target of £350, but I still hope to bring in more!

It is a real boost to get the kind donations you have made and it helps motivate me to focus on the popsitive aspects of the jump- not the scary parts!
