Flying high for charity

THRILLSEEKERS can do their bit for charity by jumping from the skies.

The British Heart Foundation is urging people to raise money for their cause by becoming a Heart Flyer.

To take part, volunteers would take part in a tandem skydive to raise money for the UK’s biggest killer, which is heart disease.

Those brave enough to come forward will be jumping out of a plane from around 12,000ft, freefalling at around 120mph for 45-50 seconds and then gliding down to earth.

You’ll be safely harnessed to a professional British Parachute Association Instructor.

The training and skydive will be completed in one day and volunteers get to choose the drop zone and date that’s most convenient to them.

And anyone who raises £400 or more will get to jump for free.
