Paul Thorley and Matt Greg from EV Express took the skies at Sandown Airport in a charity skydive to raise over £500 for Wessex Cancer Trust.
As Matt later revealed, jumping out of a plane at 10 000 feet was a major step outside his comfort zone and he had many anxious nights beforehand: “I had difficulty sleeping leading up to the day. I think it’s good that people step beyond where they are comfortable. It makes you a better person and aware that you can make a difference.”
Matt’s colleague Paul couldn’t wait for the thrills to start: “This had always been my dream, so I was looking to enjoy every moment. What a feeling with that skydive.”
The 2 superheroes were delighted with the support they have received and are still pushing for more. As Paul adds: “We’re had some tremendous support and encouragement. It is great to be doing this for a charity that does such important work in treating cancer. It’s very humbling. People can still donate to the cause on our Just Giving pages.
