WORTHING Churches Homeless Projects is seeking brave fundraisers for its second sponsored sky dive on May 16.

Nine people participated in last year’s event which saw them fly up to 12,000 feet and free-fall for 40 seconds, before their parachutes were opened.

The event raised more than £5,000 for the charity and was hailed a ‘fantastic success’ by Rachel Blair, the charity’s community fundraiser.

She said: “We were so grateful to the nine people that took part especially as some were very nervous – a sky dive is a real challenge and people definitely earn their sponsor money.”

Money raised from the event will go towards helping people that turn to the service for advice, a hot breakfast or long-term residential support.

Rachel said: “I would definitely encourage anyone who has thought about doing a sky dive before to get in touch.

“With such a demand on our services, we are always in need of support from our community and this is a fun and enjoyable way to do it.”

For more information, call Rachel on 01903 286480 or email rachel.blair@wchp.org.uk. A registration form for the sky dive can also be downloaded from www.wchp.org.uk
