Andrew Findlay is raising money for Carers Lewisham

Parachute jump for Carers Lewisham

Event date: 14th July 2016

My story

Final update: this has now been completed. I kind of wish that I could say a bit more about the experience, but it was so unlike anything that I'd ever done before and my mind was so filled with trying to process everything that I can't really explain it at all, except for the fact that it was great fun, and it feels very good to have raised so much money for such a good cause. A huge thank you to everyone who donated, and you can find some photos of the jump here:

Update 02/06/16:

First of all, thank you to everyone who has donated so far, the support has been amazing. Unfortunately, today was not to be. Wind and low cloud conspired to keep me grounded for the day. I have re-booked the jump for the 14th of July, with the good news being that I now have the chance to raise even more money for this excellent cause. Fingers crossed that summer actually arrives in six weeks' time.

Original message:

I'm planning to try to defeat gravity using nothing more than a piece of cloth in order to raise money for a local charity which helps those who spend their lives helping others. Fingers crossed I survive. Or not depending on how well you know me. I'll take donations either way.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Carers Lewisham.
