Fundraisers for Magpas are getting ready for the ultimate, airborne challenge set to happen this weekend! Even professional skydivers at UK Parachuting in Sibson near Peterborough, donned some Magpas orange, to help promote the annual skydive on the 13th July! The team at UK Parachuting are also keen Magpas supporters and have raised £12,000 for the lifesaving organisation over the past couple of years.
This annual Magpas event was originally the brainchild of local business woman, Sue Papworth, who runs Toads School of Driving in Cambridgeshire. Four years ago, Sue started inviting members of the community to sign up for a freefall adventure, in the name of the organisation she wholeheartedly believes in. As a result, this Sunday a group of individuals and businesses from all over Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and beyond will be doing a tandem skydive. To name a few; Elliot Hard from Big Local App in Cambridge, Alex Felsted and Annie Rose from Greenvale AP in Peterborough and Claire Blackham from Guardian in Bedfordshire – are all preparing for their first jump out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane.
It’s not too late to sign up for this Sunday, or any other date that suits you best! All you need to do is register online with UK Parachuting. Just choose Magpas on the skydiving website and decide when you want to do the tandem jump. You also need to be 16 years old or over.
Just click on: http://www.skydivesibson.co.uk/charity to register, or phone: (01832) 280 490 to put your name down, stating you are part of the Magpas team, and your preferred date.
Good luck and thank you for all your support!
All the Magpas team.
