    this fabulous young man is skydiving to support Diabetes Uk


    here is his truly heartfelt message

    In aid of diabetes uk I am going to skydive 10,000ft, I need your help to make this as awesome as it can be!

    If you can donate please sponsor me so we can make an admirable donation to diabetes uk, a charity very close to my heart. If you are unable to donate please share and like this post to ensure maximum exposure.

    My Nan had diabetes and it was very difficult watching it chip away at her health with the numerous complications that arise from diabetes. She was such an amazing woman with a heart of gold so in memory of her I hope I can make a donation worthy of her memory.

    Once I throw myself out of a perfectly good plane I will post any photos/videos on here so you can laugh at the petrified expression on my face as I fall toward the earth at 150mph.

    Thank you for reading, you're AWESOME.


    I have supported him and hope we can all support this great effort.
