Clic Sargent Charity FundraisingDare Devil Sixth Formers Sky Dive for Clic Sargent

Bangor Academy Sixth Formers, Harry and Alex, raised £300 for children’s cancer charity, Clic Sargent. The daring duo sky dived from 13000 feet to raise the money for this worthwhile charity.

Alex said:

“It was pretty quiet in the plane as we flew up to 13000 feet, I suppose we were all a little anxious. When it was my turn to jump, the instructor threw us out backwards and we did a couple of back flips. I noticed I was cold but then I saw the ground rushing up towards me. My instructor let me steer the parachute in to land and suddenly it was all over! Harry landed just after me and the first thing he said was, ‘Let’s do that again!’ He texted the other night to say he was looking into wing-walking and bungy jumping!  We’d both love to do something like that again soon, very soon!”
