Keith Henman, the brother of CLIC Sargent’s Chair of the Trustees, Daphne Pullen, is taking part in the charity's World Record Skydive attempt to help raise funds for children and young people with cancer.
Keith will be joining the team of CLIC Sargent skydive participants at Dunkeswell Airfield, one of the five airfields hosting the world record attempt which aims to raise £400,000 for children and young people with cancer.
Keith said: “The staff and students at Honiton Community College, where I work, have been great. When they heard which charity it was for, I reached my target of pledges in just two days. It seems people want to hear me scream!
“But that does not mean my sister Daphne is going to get away without dipping into her pocket as well. I’m looking forward to the jump, I’m sure I’ll be apprehensive on the day but in a weird sort of way, excited."
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Stephanie Cherington-Rimmell said: “I am delighted that Keith has decided to join in the World Record Skydive for CLIC Sargent, albeit with a little persuasion from his sister!”
The CLIC Sargent world record skydive
Over Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September 2013, CLIC Sargent will be attempting to smash the Guinness World Record for the most tandem parachute jumps in 24 hours.
To succeed, we are recruiting over 700 brave skydivers to take to the skies over the one weekend across five venues in Devon, Kent, Swindon, Wiltshire and Northamptonshire.
