Help me throw myself off a 17-story helipad for charity

In this entry I ask for you to support my crazy adventure next month, throwing myself off a 56-metre high helipad in aid of London's Air Ambulance.

On the 22nd of June (less than a month) I’m going to climb 17-floors to the very top of London's Air Ambulance helipad. I’ve decided it's going to be a great idea to then throw myself off the edge and abseil 56 metres back down to the ground, without a wall or anything to hang onto! Just me, a rope, and the ground.

You can support me by donating right now, or read on to find out a little more.

Are you crazy?

Probably. I'm doing it partly because it’s going to be absolutely terrifying, but also because I didn’t realise London’s Air Ambulance was a charity and relied on donations (less than 30% is funded from the NHS). What I also didn’t realise is that London is the only major city in the world with a single medical emergency helicopter. That’s just nuts. Donations help them raise funds for the new helicopter and also ensure they have all the day-to-day equipment needed to save lives in the city.

Support me and London's Air Ambulance

I’m trying to raise £500 and it’d be great if you can help me get there. I promise to take as many photos as I can of me looking terrified as a dangle over the East London skyline.

You can support me through my JustGiving page. Please don't wait for others to donate first. As Tesco would say, every little helps!

It would be even more amazing if you could share this with your friends and help raise even more money!
