Matthew Project offers charity skydive chance

Would you be brave enough to take part in the Matthew Project's tandem skydive and jump out of a plane at 13,000 feet for charity? 

Patrons of the Matthew Project The Bishop of Norwich, Rt Revd Graham James and Henry Cator, took part last year and along with 16 other brave people thy raised more than £25,000 between them

Sharon Hulbert, Media and Fundraising Manager, said,  “We are now looking for other brave people, who want a challenge in 2015, to sign up for our event at UK Parachuting in Beccles on Saturday May 9, 2015. Having experienced it myself back in 2013 I thoroughly recommend doing it even though I am not the bravest of people.”
Nicki Cooper, Health Improvement Commissioner  for Children and Young People’s Services/Public Health at Suffolk County Council, has always wanted to do a tandem skydive and now she has the opportunity, raising  funds for The Matthew Project. 

“The Matthew Project works with people of all ages whose life has been touched by drug and alcohol problems - this is something that many people are faced with throughout their life whether it is being worried about their own use or someone else’s. I have wanted to do a tandem sky dive for a long time - so for me this is a perfect opportunity to raise money for charity as well as challenging myself!” said Nicki.
