On the 9th June 2013 Warrant Officer Jim Taylor will be taking part in a sponsored tandem skydive in aid of the Mary Ann Evans Hospice.
Jim spent 22 years in the Royal Air Force before joining the Royal Air Force Air Cadets as a uniformed instructor with 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron, and in all that time he has never considered jumping out of a perfectly serviceable aircraft, that is until NOW!
The Mary Ann Evans Hospice is a local charity providing special care to local people in Nuneaton, Bedworth and North Warwickshire who are living with a life limiting illness. The money raised by volunteers like Jim is a vital source of income which will help the Hospice to continue to treat patients and support their families.
Please take the time to visit Jim's JustGiving page https://www.justgiving.com/Jim-Taylor-Skydive and help him to reach his target in support of the Mary Ann Evans Hospice.
The photograph shows Royal Air Force Air Cadets, Corporal William Mott and Flight Sergeant Michael Hadley from 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron as they strap Warrant Officer Jim Taylor into an ejector seat in an attempt to see just how high they can send him before he comes back down again. Apparently the cadets said it would be good freefall practice for him. Not quite the send-off Jim was expecting when he asked the cadets to support him in his quest to raise much needed money for the Mary Ann Evans Hospice.
