After speaking with some of the lovely hard working staff at Haemophilia Scotland, I signed myself up for Skydive to raise some funds to support the great work they do. Now I should probably mention at this point I have a fear of heights so perhaps not the smartest move I’ve made.

The whole process was really easy, made more so because Haemophilia Scotland team were so helpful, along with the staff running St Andrews Skydive. It was intended to be a Santa Skydive but due to bad weather along with my luck we had to reschedule a few times.

We managed to finally get the jump completed on the 27th August 2017. I can honestly say it’s one of the best experiences I’ve ever had, and its all for a good cause! It’s no where near as bad as I thought it would be and it was highly exhilarating. I managed to raise over £500, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that donated. I hope you enjoy the video!
