    do a parachute jump for charity !
    i have just decided this, its something i've allways fancied doing but have been too heavy to do.
    by time i get to 40 in July i WILL be at goal so it seems the ideal thing to do to celebrate the two things, so you are being given plenty of notice as i will be coming cap in hand nearer the time !! or am i being too cheeky?
    as of yet i'm not sure which charity i will choose, but probably a cancer one.
    watch this space :D

    Well done, what a great thing to do, Ill definitely sponsor you! As Pierce said, we have 1,100 members now, if we all sponsored you just £1 that would be amazing!

    just to update you,
    i have requested an information pack about doing the jump.
    most probably i will be doing it for Cancerbackup, i thought this covers allsorts of cancers rather than just, say, breast or bowel.
    only problem i have now is my 11 year old wants to do it with me, but she's too young, so lots of sulking going on at home !!:D

    Hey Pandora there is a free website you can set a page up on for people to sponsor you. it is www.justgiving.co.uk.......or com. My hubby did half marathon a couple of years ago and we heard about it from the charity he ran for. It is easy to set up and easy to update the page.
    I also sent emails to local companies asking them to sponsor him to and to explain about the charity he chose(cancer charity), he got over £400 from complete strangers......so good luck.
