Well done to Lizzie Wardale who made her first charity tandem skydive over the skies of Lincolnshire on Sunday the 2nd October from 15,000ft. She and 4 others work for RB in York and decided to raise money for Save the Children charity by leaping from one of our perfectly good airplanes!

We admire anyone who chooses to make a leap of faith outside of their normal life. As you can see from the photos below, she had a pretty good experience.

A huge congratulations to charity tandem skydive Jack Mitchell who successfully made his 1st tandem parachute jump for Sheffield Neurocare. Jack is not your average tandem skydiver, he was involved in an awful accident suffering some pretty serious brain injuries which left him confined largely to a wheelchair. That being said, Jack came to us wanting to make his first skydive and after an assessment, we decided he was suitable.

1. What gave you the idea to choose to do a tandem skydive over a sponsored walk or run for example?

I have always wanted to try skydiving, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity so when my auntie mentioned she had seen the hospice were holding a charity skydive event we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to fulfil our dream and raise money for a brilliant charity. 

2. Do you have any connection with St Andrew's Childrens Hospice?
