Daring skydivers wanted in Swindon to raise cash for Marie Curie Cancer Care
11:14am Friday 2nd November 2012 in News
A CANCER charity is looking for daredevils to take the plunge –literally – for a good cause.
Marie Curie Cancer Care is holding a jump day for those with a sense of adventure and who want to make a real difference in 2013. Taking place in Swindon on Sunday, July 14, the charity is looking for thrill-seekers who want to be part of this unique experience.
Marie Curie events officer Matt Carruthers completed a skydive of his own and encouraged others to take part.
He said: “It is a breathtaking experience.
“There’s no other rush like it and it’s such a unique opportunity to see the world from an amazing perspective whilst raising money to support our fantastic nurses.”
Harnessed to a professional parachute instructor, you will be jumping from 10,000 feet in an experience of a lifetime, all in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care and the care its nurses provide to cancer patients and their families.
For more information on the jump day, or parachuting for the charity in general, call Matt on 01884 703536 or email wales.westevents @mariecurie.org.uk for an information pack.
