Sponsored Parachute Jump

The weather was glorious for Jump day for Eoin, Haytham, Stewart, Darren and William as they fulfilled their promise to jump from an aeroplane at 10,000 ft in memory of Yusef. 

They were very apprehensive at the beginning of the day, and when Eoin left first, having drawn the short straw, the crowd fell silent.  When the plane took off, they revelled a bit, and talked of it being "a piece of cake", etc, etc, until the plane soared then its engine cut out!
Silence prevailed as they watched with baited breath for what happened next, until we all realised the engine cuts just before the parachutists jump!  I cannot repeat Eoin's first words when I asked him how he felt after the jump.  I am not sure it is in the English Language - Oh actually maybe it was in Arabic!  In between jumps, they managed to have a picnic, chase sheep, and hold a record-breaking competition to see how many people could fit into Tess's tiny car!  Photos have now been uploaded to the website.  All the guys have raised lots of cash and have done Yusef proud.
Due to weather conditions, the next group of jumpers are scheduled to jump at Errol Airfield on Sunday 7 June. Watch this space
