This time next week I should be falling through the air… in a controlled way of course!
I will be doing a Tandem Skydive from 10,000 feet.
It’s not only because I’m completely mad and actually want to do a Skydive, but also because I want to raise money for RNIB.
You can read about my reasons behind chooing RNIB for this money in a previous blog post here:
Respect for Eyes and Sight: http://splodzblogz.wordpress.com/2010/03/09/respect-for-eyes-and-sight/
I have raised the target £395 for RNIB, which I am really pleased about.
It is true to say that while I am an adventurous person and this really is something I want to do, I am getting quite nervous about it. I saw a video of someone else doing a Skydive recently and while I’m not worried about the falling bit and am not afraid of heights, the steep rate of incline on take-off does bother me a bit… flying isn’t my favourite thing! But I am still looking forward to it – I can’t believe it will happen next Sunday!
There is still time to sponsor me if you would like to. Please see this blog post to find out how:

And I will be sure to blog as soon as I can after my Skydive to let you all know how it went!
