For reasons best known to himself David has chosen to show his support for wounded servicemen (and raise a considerable amount of cash) by leaping out of a perfectly serviceable aircraft.
Help for Heroes are better off to the tune of some £16,700 as a result of this act of lunacy, and our Association remains extremely relieved to hear that David landed safely back on Earth...
"The parachute jump finally took place on the 9th October 2008 having been transferred from the original date because the RAF wanted the air space. I never knew that I was that large! The total raised by all of you as I write this, stands at around £16, 700 which is a fantastic achievement. But, we don’t want to give them that, (as the expression goes) we want to give them more."
