"Why oh why did I ever volunteer to do a tandem skydive?
As I drove towards Sibson airfield on a beautiful sunny day, it would be fair to say I was VERY apprehensive, but I'd raised quite a lot of money for Newstraid and had to go through with it. My nerves started to subside when I met up with my fellow Newstraid jumpers at the airfield including 4 of my work colleagues from the Daily Mirror. We had our briefing and training and then I was called to get my parachute and get on the plane. 15 minutes later I was free-falling with my tandem partner (who was a professional by the way!) at ridiculous speeds from 13,000 feet - and there is not a feeling in the world quite like it. Exhilarating, awesome, mind-blowing - any superlative you want to choose. Parachute opens, we float down gently back to terra firma - and the first thing I want to do is go straight back up and do it again.
Not only will you have an incredible, hair-raising experience, you'll also be raising funds for The NewstrAid Benevolent Fund.
We help people and their immediate dependents, who have been employed in newspaper and magazine distribution in the UK and who have fallen on hard times. Distribution means people who deal with newspapers and magazines from the time they leave the printing press until they reach the reader.
We already have 5 amazing people signed up for the 2018 jump! Learn more about the class of 2018 below.
Anyone can take part whether you work in the news sector, for a magazine, publishing, wholesale, distribution or retail industry. Friends and relatives are also very welcome. Simply send a registration request via email to Dorothy King.Sign up today
