Wayne Taylor is Falling For Youth

Wayne Taylor, our Lexus Business Sales Specialist is braving a skydive on 14th February in aid of Youth Fed.

 

10 daring jumpers (not the woolly kind) are lined up to 'Fall for Youth' on the 14th of February !  They are all being sponsored and the proceeds are going to Youth Fed.

What's it going to be like?

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet - the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below.  Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go - falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph !  Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below.  Imagine being able to do this for FREE whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help a national charity !

What does the jump involve?

Technically the jump is called a 'Tandem Skydive'.  It is a Skydive because he will be freefalling through the air (without the parachute deployed) for several thousand feet; it is in Tandem because he will be harnessed to a professional parachute instructor at all times throughout the descent. 

To sponsor Wayne please go to his Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/Wayne-Taylor24 and for more details call him on 0151 347 5604.
