Thank you! Maybe not crazy as such... I'm just terrified of heights, and I've always wanted to do something for charity, so why not conquer my fears at the same time? :lol:

The charity is Great Ormand Street Children's hospital. It's a cause pretty personal to me, I spent a lot of my childhood in and out of hospitals and I swear these guys are miracle workers. They deffo deserve a lot more recognition and respect for the work they do.

Two birds with one stone, win-win. Well done, TSR is rooting for you! :rave:

Omg, I love GOSH! They took care of my cousin a lot when he was ill and I used to have a look around the hospital as well. You can't even tell it's a hospital and the staff/nurses/doctors are amazing. Good cause! :yep: :five: :heart:

Yeah I was surprised too! I was only a child back then but the place is so welcoming and it's so much nicer than being at a general hospital. I'm just glad I've finally gotten this opportunity to give something back.

How much are you intending to raise? Don't forget, you have to deduct the cost of your parachute and other skydiving gear as well as the plane hire fee

The gear and hire and whatnot have already been paid out of my own pocket, it's something I've wanted to do for a long time so I'm finally going for it.

I'm hoping to raise at least a couple of hundred pounds, if not more. I've found it quite hard to come up with a realistic goal.

As much as I don't want that to happen, as least I would have died doing something decent I guess. :lol:
