Hatty tells us "Although I've got pink hair and tattoos, it wasn't till our little adventure (6 months backpacking, 12 countries and the best time ever) last year that I actually got a little more adventurous but it pipped my passion and now I am determined to terrify myself a little more and Ben's just tagging along.

We will be jumping out of a plane, with a cheery instructor attached to our backs, hit speeds of 120mph before the parachute is pulled and drift down to the ground with, hopefully, massive grins on our faces."

So to raise money on the 11th of June 2016 I will strap myself to somebody I have only met a few hours beforehand and then jump out of a perfectly serviceable Aeroplane and float earthwards beneath a large silk sheet.

All you have to do is give me loads of money. I need to raise at least £400 and more would be better obviously. Its a great cause, during the time we thought Tricia had a Thyroid problem it became clear that the Medical establishment fails miserably on all fronts with this condition and Thyroid UK helps sufferers and fights the system to get better treatment for the many people it affects.

Thyroid diseases have probably affected at least one person you know. Please give generously and if I survive I may buy you a pint when I see you in the pub. Dave.

Michelle says:

In support of Thyroid DiseaseFeb 2012 I was diagnosed with an auto immune disorder called Graves disease, which attacked my Thyroid causing over activity of the gland.
You can think of the thyroid as a central gear in a sophisticated engine. If the gear breaks, the entire engine goes down with it. My thyroid was broken and in Aug 2013 I went for surgery to have it removed. As a result of the surgery I am now required to keep my engine ticking over with the help of many tablets every day for the remainder of my life. Thyroid UK helps sufferers fight the system to get better treatment for the many people it affects. I too have had to fight in order to be me again, and get the treatment I require.

I'll be strapped to someone I barely know who will throw us out of an aircraft door from over 2 and half miles up, sending us freefalling at a speed of 120mph through the clouds, before gliding back down to my apparently envious supporters (their words not mine!). Possibly the craziest thing I have done to date, and let's face it those of you who know me know I've done some crazy stuff in my time. But hey, it's another tick on the Bucket List.

On 11th June, for some unknown reason, I am leaping from an aeroplane to raise funds for Thyroid UK!

I have chosen this charity because a friend of mine works for them and they do great work!
