Jumping from 15000 feet

19th September was a beautiful sunny day! Unfortunately I was facing my fears! I did a skydive at 15000 feet at my local skydiving centre in Durham. It was surreal doing something which was utterly terrifying but amazing at the same time!

I wanted to do something to challenge myself (I turned 40 on the 24th September) and this crazy idea seemed just the job. My mum had suffered from GBS in 2012 and we will remember the terror we felt at this unknown debilitating syndrome. We are incredibly lucky that my mum made a full recovery and she can enjoy her grandchildren. I wanted to do this to raise money for GAIN to raise awareness of something of something of this cruel and frightening syndrome.
