    In September I will be pushed out of an aircraft in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital (for little fillies and colts). What's more, I am hoping to make the jump dressed as a Wonderbolt (I am waiting for a final go-ahead on this particular point), although a Sonic Pinkboom will not be included in my descent ;)

    In aid of this, I'd like to ask you all to donate a little towards GOSH on my justgiving page (http://www.justgiving.com/Stuart-Excell) - if I get enough donations, they might give me a parachute before they push me! ;)

    Thank you for reading, and thank you for any help you can give :)

    I've done a couple of jumps in the past. It's great fun... the adrenaline spike was so big it hurt...

    Have you got the go-ahead to dress as a Wonderbolt yet? With or without the suit I’ll still donate.

    Still haven't been told either way. At this rate, I may just turn up in costume anyway if they don't say no ;)

    With regards to the jump, pretty good (although I am distracted with uni work at the moment). Ask me again when I'm looking out of the doorway of an airborne aircraft and I'm sure a healthy fear of going splat will reveal itself. Maybe I can request that Rarity catch me? ;)

    So... going to sponsor me? :)

    Good news: I figured out what that thing you just incinerated did. I'm now 99% certain that I can wear my Wonderbolts costume for the jump. The skydiving centre are reserving final judgement until on the day when they see the costume, but seeing as the costume is very similar in design to what they'd have us wearing for the jump anyway I'm confident that there won't be a problem :)

    Update:
    [​IMG]

    When I arrived at the airfield, they decided to tell me that the earth finds me too damn attractive I'm too fat to jump. (Quite why they didn't mention this when I first provided my details is a mystery however.)

    The good news is though that I'm not badly over the limit, so I will now me going on a diet ready to make the jump on a future date. I'll continue to make updates when I have new infomation as to when exactly this will be :)
