My story

[p]It has been on my bucket list for a while now, that is to jump out of a plane, experience a tandem skydive and parachute safely to ground.[/p][p]I will be doing this on Sunday 4th July 2021 at Grange-Over-Sands through Skydive Northwest. [/p][p]The Northwest Parachute Centre location is rated as one of the most picturesque skydive centres in the world with views over the Lake District and Morecambe Bay.[/p][p]The jump will be from up to 15,000ft and we will reach speeds of up to 120mph during the freefall.[/p][p]The jump will also be used to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. [/p][p]Across the UK:[/p][p]Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men.[/p][p]More than 47,500 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year – that's 129 men every day.[/p][p]Every 45 minutes one man dies from prostate cancer – that's more than 11,500 men every year.[/p][p]1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.[/p][p]Around 400,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer.[/p][p]I would like to thank EDF for covering the application fee for this charity event.[/p][p]On behalf of Prostate Cancer UK I would like to thank you for any donation you can manage.[/p][p]UPDATE: I completed the tandem skydive in beautiful sunshine. [/p][p]Amazing that it was raining less than an hour prior to my jump.[/p][p]Thank you very much to all who contributed to the worthy cause, Prostate Cancer UK. Your support is appreciated 👍[/p][p]Massive thanks to Danny, the instructor and Rob, the cameraman who took the footage below:[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/g7B72FQwlj8?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p]
