On Saturday 23rd March at approximately 11am, We will be launched out of a perfectly safe aircraft by a person I have barely met.

We will hurtle towards Durham at speeds of up to 120mph through the cold, the wind and the rain until a small sheet of nylon is deployed on the promise that this will break our fall and avoid us looking like Halloween pancakes upon landing.

Our MD Nigel, will do this alongside two colleagues from First Choice Labels who share the same, twisted, illogical view of what Saturday is meant for and together they will form the first inaugural FCL Skydiving team.

We’re hoping to survive but much more importantly, we are hoping to raise much needed funds for an absolutely Fabulous charity right on our doorstep.

The Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundations raises money, predominantly, from the local business community and an army of Philanthropic centurions.

Every penny raised is donated to wonderful charities, not for profit organisations and individuals with sporting excellence from across the whole of Teesside.

Could I ask you to please help me raise funds for this fantastic charity? Any donations, as much or as little as you can manage, would be greatly appreciated and will allow the MTPF to continue their fabulous work.


Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Just Giving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank you Nigel, Matty & Jamie L x
