Richard is skydiving
I was involved in setting up the Winter Night Shelter Milton Keynes back in 2010, and have been involved with the charity every year since. I've seen over the years so many people supported out of homelessness, and have seen first hand how it changes the lives of rough sleepers in our city.I am 60 this May, and really don't need any more presents. So, instead, I want to do something useful to help those facing the trauma of being homeless, which is far scarier than jumping out of a plane. Every penny of sponsorship goes directly to the charity, and so towards helping people off the streets, and that's worth my 60th birthday efforts.
I try to do everything in team and with teams, so I am doing this with Stuart, our Operations Director, and Sara, our Communications Manager. Well done both of them for signing up to join me.
Please show your support, however small the donation, and I trust that I will survive to thank you in person after the event. Thank you for supporting WNSMK's work with the homeless.
8th June update: It has been postponed! Endless grey clouds, a lot of rain, and apparently most importantly gusts of winds up to 50 mph, have all conspired to put off the moment when I throw myself out of an airplane. Apparently being blown onto the A1M (the next location to the east), isn't regarded as a great idea. New date is Saturday, 24th August.
