Go ahead and...jump! There are 19 happy volunteers ready to skydive – strapped to a highly-qualified instructor - on Saturday 28th June but a seat still needs to be taken to fill the heavier than air machine. By Jack Troughton The event has been organised by One Step Malawi and will raise money for charities across the Costa Blanca and abroad. Funds will go to help build a school at a Malawi orphanage and cash is also being raised for the MABS Cancer Support Group, animal charities AKIRA and APASA, the children of EMAUS and the Red Cross. Everyone taking part has paid for the thrills of their moment of madness so all sponsorship goes to the good causes. Nikki Luxford, of One Step Malawi, told RTN: “The idea wasn’t only to raise funds and awareness of the orphanage school build project but to support local charity too. “It is really important that local charities work together to achieve a common goal. The event should not only allow these charities to raise money but their ‘jumpers’ and charity representatives will have the chance to meet and learn about other charities taking part.” The jump takes place at the Skydive Centre in Castellon and the organisers have secured a reduced rate of 190€ rate per jumper – also the going rate for the final place.
