Thanks for coming to this donations page.

On Sunday 19th May 2013, weather permitting, I am doing a tandem skydive. I am taking 14 sixth formers to jump as well.

I was hoping you could pledge a little bit of money for Musequality however big or small. We have chosen a charity called Musequality which you can find out about from the link. It’s a charity our school is developing ever closer links with.

The first time I arranged a skydive with students from school was in 2001. Since then I have been taking groups every two years. Thanks if you have supported me in the past, and thanks if you can again now.

Not counting this year, 66 students have skydived since this trip began. Their names are James Durnford, Sam Crawford, Stephanie Idwal-Jones, Marius Arnold-Clarke, George Beasley, Nick Ceadel, Nick Michell, Catherine Morris, Sam Solnick, Daniel Aked, Vicki Dockrell, Alex Hughes-Smith, Jessica Mayer Jones, Allie Pavry, Jack Sichel, Honor Sumner, Bonny Tydeman, Matthew Winter, Freddy Cassavetti, Leo Nihoy Annopoulos, Jonty Donebauer, Tim Le Rougetel, Helena Antoniou, Galen Stops, Robert Wellburn, Oliver Snellgrove, Martyn Durnford, Beatrice Bradley, Katie Hobbs, Tom Reid, John Paul Tooth, Lucy Karonias, Alice Gibbs, Rory McMahon, Steven Soulsby, Max Stegner, Joe Murphy, Victor Naden Robinson, Joe Tyler, Gavin O’Connell, Christopher Hodgkinson, George Dodds Smith, Lucy Goddard, Tom Dilke, Becky Krawczyk, Emily Lean, Jack Buckland, Ed Zimmer, Sean Teale, Cat Troiano, Daniel Jaffe, Jameel Bakhsh, Henry Fewster, Jen Davies, Fred Evans, Isaac Storey, Jonny Ross Tatam, Tom Tulloh, Charlie Behan, Gemma Sort Chilvers, Evie Griffin, Georgia Grayson, Connie Cerf, Celia Reston, Tom Arden, and Peru d’Ornellas.
Five staff have also skydived with us. They are Alex Ballard, Chris Lee, Sam Cheung, Matt Russell, Helen Doyme, and Adriana Williams.

Between them they have raised in excess of £11,000 for many charities, just some of which are: Whizzkids, The Teenage Cancer Trust, Hope HIV, Childhealth Advocacy International, and a malaria research facility at the University of London.
