BDMLR volunteers skydiving for charity

Six volunteers are going to take part in a 10,000ft tandem skydive on the 29th May at RAF Bicester near Oxford. We are going to fling ourselves out of an airplane to raise as much money as possible for the South West boat fund. We are currently trying to raise nearly £20,000 to supply the South West with a 7m Tornado RIB + engine and appropriate equipment. Each skydiver has already found the £180 to cover the fee for the skydive and we are now trying to raise as much as possible on top of that. There will video of the skydive both from the ground and the air.

The 'willing' volunteers are:

Tony Woodley - BDMLR Director ( thanks to Jurassic Coast Diving, Devon Signs , Exmouth Power Tools and Corner House Veterinary Surgery for sponsoring my fee )

Lissa Goodwin - Plymouth Coordinator

Faye Archell - Essex Coordinator

Marilyn den Hollander - Medic ( former Plymouth coordinator, Arie den Hollander's, wife )

Natalie Hartley - BDMLR supporter

Samantha Glanfield - BDMLR supporter

Please sponsor us to help the SW teams get their boat.

If you know any of the above names personally, please get in touch with them or just pledge direct to me as it all goes in the same pot anyway!

Email me via : tony@bdmlr.org.uk or call me on 07723 054020

Spectators/supporters are welcome to join us at RAF Bicester on the day. Suggest arriving approx 10.00am.

Many thanks,

Tony Woodley
BDMLR Director
