Skydiving with the Red Devils

IT’S going to be a leap of faith when Greg Shackleford and Sean Palmer take part in a sponsored tandem skydive with the Red Devils.

The daring duo are all set to make the jump, with 18 other brave men and women, on Thursday 21st June as part of the Midlands Air Ambulance’s 21st Anniversary celebrations.

Greg, from Sutton, and Sean, from Mansfield Woodhouse, are really excited about the prospect of leaping out of a plane at 12,000 feet.

“It’s something I’ve always fancied doing and it’s with the right people for the right cause,” said Greg. “Once I’d signed up, my girlfriend’s son decided to do it too. We hope to raise at least £400 for this worthwhile cause.”
