Thrill seekers sought for charity skydive
THRILL SEEKERS across the North East are being sought to take part in a charity skydive. The Meningitis Trust is encouraging people to join them for a 13,000 ft free-fall with the Red Devils. The fundraising challenge will see participants accelerate from a standing start to 120mph in ten seconds. The event will take place at Langar Airfield in Nottinghamshire on Wednesday May 8. Those taking part need to commit to raising a minimum sponsorship of £650. For more information, visit meningitis-trust.org or contact Jo Killick on 0845 120 4886.
