I'm jumping from 20,000 feet to raise money for Kiwi Can in Marlborough.

Main image

The Graeme Dingle Foundation are needing extra help to welcome more schools into the “Kiwi Can” programme in Marlborough. The word has now got around on what this programme achieves for the young people of Marlborough, with school trustees, principals , teachers, parents and kids all keen to be involved... the local Graeme Dingle team cannot keep up with the demand.

So it is time to dust off (top dressing term!) the old flying suit and jump out of a perfectly good aeroplane.

Problem is the old suit has shrunk in the wash and I have got quite a bit of work to do to fit into the new sizing. Of course none of you would ever be so rude to ask exactly how many kilos need to be shed, but to put it in perspective let’s say 12 plus kgs. Accordingly, I have locked the pantry door at home and brushed the cob webs off the gym card and the process has started. Given my passion for food the path that I am treading will not be easy.

On a good note 20,000 feet is now the highest tandem sky dive in NZ, Australasia and the World (according to Google)... with an 85 second free fall. Something to really look forward to.

So we would really appreciate your support. If you are really keen, Kelvin could set you up with your own “givealittle page” and you too could jump out of a perfectly good aeroplane!!

Otherwise, please push the donate button and support the work of Graeme Dingle Foundation in Marlborough!!

I am jumping from 20,000 feet and the target is open this time round so the sky is the limit of what we can raise for this fantastic cause.
