As many of you know, I've been involved in fundraising for some years now...so I thought I’d show you a few pictures of me doing a death defying leap for charity. This is the first of the two bungee jumps I’ve done…all in the name of charity.

I’m that tiny dot high above the ground…if someone had zoomed in enough you’d be able to see my mouth wide open, mid scream/curse/whatever.

Although I’m not suggesting that I didn’t question my sanity when I peered out of a tiny cage, three hundred feet above the ground with nothing more than a glorified elastic band attached to my ankles!!! It was great fun, its over so quickly though, I just wanted to get back up there and do it again….

The second one was a little higher, but less fun as the elastic band was less springy and I didn’t bounce so high. In the first one here, I bounced so high, I was actually higher than the cage at one point…fabulous.

Although I wouldn’t say I’m an adrenaline junkie, I’ll pretty much give anything a go. Hence the fact that I’m also doing a parachute jump later in the year.

I’ll post photos of course…well, unless I have a parachute malfunction and end up a big splat on the ground!!! Although I must stop saying that in front of my mum, she does the sign of the cross every time I mention it. She almost had a heart attack the day me and two of my brother’s bungeed the first time… perhaps I’ll slip a couple of valium in her coffee for the parachute jump!

Take care

    I would suggest going through the UK bungee club. safety is paramount. you can see their site on


    they have a whole list of charities you can jump for, alternatively you can pick your own to raise for.

    good luck
