A HUGE WELL DONE to Carol Fagan on completing her sponsored tandem Skydive on Saturday 14th July 2012, diving from 14000ft at Grange-over-sands.

Here’s what Carol had to say about her experience of a lifetime:

I have at last managed to complete my sponsored skydive. Third time lucky (postponed due to our awful UK summer!!).

I had the most amazing experience, we flew up to 14,000 ft, the plane shutter doors opened and the sound of the wind came rushing through the inside of the small plane.
I was already strapped to my tutor and we shuffled our way to the door of the plane. We were way above the clouds and the sky was perfectly blue and so very clear.
He dangled me over the edge of the plane and within seconds we were falling like stones. It was the most amazing experience, we dropped 10,000 ft in 45 seconds at 120 miles per hour. I was smiling all the way and in no way nervous. When we were 5,000ft off the ground he opened up the parachute and we floated slowly down to the ground, waving and taking in the most tremendous views of the countryside. We landed perfectly and smiled again at my cameraman who’d skydived with me to make a video of my experience.
What a way to raise money for such a worthy Charity………… thank you for all the support and sponsorship.
