What's skydiving really like?

Stephanie took part in a charity skydive earlier this year and has shared with us what it really feels like and why you should take the plunge and get involved:

"Jumping out of the plane never felt safer as I was strapped to an instructor who had experienced over 6000 jumps.

 Looking at the view was the most rewarding part and knowing I’d done all of this for such a worthy cause was the icing on the cake.

If you’re thinking about taking part in a skydive, I would say without a shadow of doubt, do it. I was very nervous the night before but the adrenaline kicks in and the cause gets you through the fear.

What better way to tick something off on your bucket list than to help such an incredible cause in the process."
