    tandem jump

    Hi everyone,
    I was diagnosed mnd in November 2018. The mnd charity has helped me so much so I have decided to try and give something back by doing a sponsored tandem jump on the 11th July, a lot of people have told me I am crazy as I have lost the use of my legs but the red devils are prepared to help me make the jump so I'm going for it (scary) but its for a worth while cause.
    Not sure if I am allowed to post this on here, if anyone wants to sponsor me you can find me on Just giving site under Maz Hunnables Tandem jump.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this, I welcome all the support I can get

    thanks for your kind words, doing the jump gives me something to focus on other than this awful disease. People have been so kind with donations and it makes it so worth while when people I have never met donate.
    Love

    Hi Maz

    On the evidence of my wife's experience (I'm too much of a wimp) , it will be great.

    Good for you!

    Will they take video on the way down as it is over quite quickly but a blast to re-live several times over?

    And do work out if there is any type of queue - we had a long wait and did not take food

    Warmly
