Skydive with glamour model Jodie Marsh

THE ESSEX Air Ambulance Fundraising Team is looking for brave volunteers to take part in a challenge of a lifetime – ‘Jump with Jodie’.

Have you ever fancied doing a parachute jump? This is your chance to fulfil that ambition by joining Essex celebrity Jodie Marsh in an adrenaline fuelled parachute jump plus raising vital funds to keep the County’s life-saving helicopter flying. The jump will take place on Sunday 12th June 2011 at Cambridge Airfield. If you are interested in taking part please hurry as the deadline for registrations is Monday 4th April 2011 and there are only 50 places available. The registration fee is �70 plus you will need to raise a minimum sponsorship of �325.

A tandem skydive is the most popular jump type, you do not need any formal training for this jump as you’ll be strapped to a fully qualified instructor. You jump from a minimum of 10,000 feet and experience freefall. This truly is a once in a lifetime thrill!

Jodie Marsh said, “This is not my first skydive but I am really excited, I can’t wait! It’s such an exhilarating experience. If you fancy a challenge please support your Air Ambulance and jump with me in June. What a fun way to raise funds for such a worthy local cause!”

Nina Bensher, Fundraising Manager of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust who will be taking part in the skydive said, “Myself, Jodie and our very own Air Crew Paramedic Chris Martin will be jumping to help raise vital funds for Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust. This is going to be a fantastic opportunity for anyone that has wanted to do a skydive and help support a very worthwhile cause. It’s going to be a really fun day that will be a great challenge for lots of people, I can’t wait!”
