A skydive to prove anything is possible

A skydive to prove anything is possible

Our founder, Matt Manners has come up with a challenge to raise money for a cause close to his heart.

Matt said, “This challenge began after a very challenging 2015 and I thought by doing this, it proves to myself and others there is nothing we can’t do. This is one of my greatest fears bar none. Maybe being put in a tank of spiders would beat it but both are quite petrifying thoughts.

I have since thought it would be great to raise money for charity whilst doing something I’m not going to enjoy. If you can donate a pound/dollar or two I would be very grateful.

More importantly the people who will receive it will be even more grateful. It is a disease that isn’t very well known and therefore not very well funded. JFK had it and so does someone I love very dearly.

So I’ll be jumping out of a plane on my birthday this July over the south of England. I’ll make sure I get proof.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.”

If you would like to help him reach his target before he reaches 10, 000 feet and the only way down is out of the plane, visit his Just Giving Funding site.
