The sky dive experience was truly amazing. Having waited 30 years to finally get round to doing a parachute jump, I can honestly say it was well worth waiting for!

Moving from sitting on a bench in the plane to the doorway with my legs dangling over the side, to falling out of the plane was so quick that I had no time to be nervous. I felt exhilarated free falling for about 40 secs with the wind rushing past me and somewhat overwhelmed with the incredible feeling of weightlessness as the parachute opened and our speed of descent changed so that I was able to appreciate the amazing views and quietness of the Kent countryside from being so high up. 

Would I do it again? Yes most definitely!

A huge thankyou to all my sponsors who have so far generously donated to Stand By Me.
