My story

[p]Hi, many thanks for visiting my fundraising page.[/p][p] I have decided to go for the world record for the oldest male Tandem Sky Dive on the 13th May 2017 at Dunkeswell Airfield near Honiton and I will also be raising money for the Royal British Legion charity. I will be 101 years and 37 days old and the record is currently held by a Canadian gentleman who was 101 years and 3 days when he jumped. I would like to bring the record back to Britain.[/p][p]The Royal British Legion is close to my heart, my father having served in WW1 and myself, Brothers and Sister in WW2. Any donations would be welcomed.[/p][lt]h2 style="box-sizing: inherit; max-height: 1000000px; font-family: futura-pt, arial, sans-serif; line-height: 1.2em; margin: 0px 0px 15px; font-weight: 500; font-size: 24px; text-align: center;"[gt]TO THE MEMORY OF THE FALLEN AND THE FUTURE OF THE LIVING[lt]/h2[gt] [div=box-sizing: inherit; max-height: 1000000px; font-family: futura-pt, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 18px; text-align: center;]The Royal British Legion provides lifelong support for the Armed Forces community - serving men and women, veterans, and their families[/div][p] Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
