On June 29th (delayed due to weather in May), Lynne, Tom and Amy will be doing a skydive from 10,000ft. "STUPID" I hear you say but no ... We are doing it to help raise money for a very special friend Alex Lewis.

Alex Lewis became a triple amputee after contracting an extremely rare Streptoccocal infection in November 2013. Against all odds, since, he has made an incredible recovery, and after some more rehabilitation may soon be able to return home to his partner Lucy, and 3 year old son Sam.

But Alex's care comes at a cost, he needs prosthetic limbs which are very costly and require future maintenance, care at home, and modifications to his home before he can return to it. He also wants to help the ward he's been treated on at Salisbury Hospital, by fitting wifi for the other amputees being looked after there.

The skydive in June is being self funded, so all your donations will go to Alex's trust. Thank you!

UPDATE: Unfortunately Alex has now become a quadruple amputee when, after breaking his arm doctors discovered a nasty infection that had severely weakened his bones.
