Paul's Sky dive

Sunday 19th October

 

I'd just like to start by saying a really big Thank You to all who have supported me and donated money to Kidney Research UK, I really appreciate your support.

I also hope that, by reading my story, you have also been encouraged to sign up for the NHS Organ Donor register (if you have not already done so!)

Anyone still wanting to donate, or to check the total, please do so via my fundrasing page - http://www.kidneyresearchukevents.org/paulskydive

My sky dive took place at Hibaldstow airfield, just south of Brigg, North Lincolnshire, with Sky Dive Hibaldstow.  The training and preparation was great and they really looked after us on the day, making sure that everone was safe.

A final mention must also go to my Auntie B, because without her inspiration and drive to do this jump (for her 75th birthay!), I might not have got round to doing it.

Below are a few pictures from our day and my video experience sky dive - just to prove that I really did jump out of a perfectly good plane!

Thank You

Paul
