Richard Jumps for the Band

Exbourne Cross Garage proprietor Richard Brock wanted to raise money to help send the Hatherleigh Silver Band to Harrogate for the recent Championships. Determined to do something memorable, he decided to jump out of a plane tandem-fashion! The plan was to do this before the Band left for the competition, but for one reason or another his jump was postponed three times and it was well after the event that he eventually took to the skies. Nevertheless, he raised over £1700! "And the best bit was?" we asked him when back on terra firma. "Jumping out was fine," he said, "and free-falling was really enjoyable. But hanging under the canopy for the last part was horrific!" Well done anyway Richard.

Here are some pictures of Richard's jump.

Still smiling!

Jumping out!

Still smiling!

Not that happy!
