BRAVE supporters from Bognor Regis will take the plunge for charity.

Victoria Fox and Martin Tull, who live in the town, will show they have a head for heights when they take part in a sponsored skydive in aid of Smile Support and Care.

Martin said: “I am doing this jump to help support disabled people and their families in these demanding times, to help build a short-break centre for the future.”

The jump will see the pair complete a tandem skydive from around 10,000ft enjoying a 120mph gravity-powered freefall descent before they gently float back down to 
solid ground.

Victoria added: “To celebrate my 30th year I wanted to do something big, something that I would always 
remember.

“So when the opportunity came up to partake in a skydive on behalf of Smile Support and Care I jumped at the chance (no pun intended) – especially as it is on behalf of a cause very close to my heart.”

The daring event, which takes place on September 1 at Old Sarum Airfield in Salisbury, is the first of its kind for the charity.

Other daredevil residents are also being encouraged to take part.

Community fundraiser Jess Zubaidi said: “If you are looking for the time of your life, in aid of a fantastic local cause, then here’s your chance.

“Registration costs £50 with a sponsorship target of £425, which includes the cost of the jump.”

The charity, which has a base in Littlehampton, provides essential respite care to children and young adults with 
disabilities.

You can sponsor Martin online at www.justgiving.com/smilejump or text SSAC 87 £(amount) to 70070.
