Skydive - Well I am 46 today and am celebrating by signing up to do the skydive on 12 May to raise funds for NRAS!

I did a tandem skydive a few years ago to raise funds for a local hospice and it was absolutely brilliant. I was diagnosed with RA just under a year ago and like many others am on a combination of various DMARDS and painkillers, etc,etc....

I think NRAS is fantastic and this site has been great for me with info, support and advice so whatever I raise will be just be a small thankyou to all those at NRAS.

For anyone considering the skydive, I would say go for it if you can - it's one of the best things I have ever done. Go on, I dare you......

Happy birthday Mags

I did a 45 minute top of mountain to bottom in a paraglider and it was amazing. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did the paragliding. Just when they say go or whatever DO IT!!! Axx


WooHoo, Mags, Happy Birthday. Yes, to the skydiving fun! I would do it again in a minute, if I could afford it. I would love to jump tandem & get to free-fall next time. I did a static line jump once-a long long long time ago.

Have a great day.
