Sunday 28th October, was D Day for Phil Sherriff and Gary Walton, this was the day of the Skydive.

Gary and Phil members of the Norfolk Advance Motorcyclists, have been regular visitors to HOPS on the annual Easter ride out delivering Easter Eggs to the children and also raising funds for HOPS.

The skydive was on Phil’s bucket list and thought it would be a good way of raising extra funds for HOPS. Gary kindly agreed to join Phil on this fundraising free-fall.

The day arrived, freezing cold, grey, drizzling Sunday morning, not the best weather, but nerves and excitement filled the air. It wasn’t long before the briefing was over and the guys were togged up and ready to go.

The sun came out as plane circled upwards as we watched from the ground, eventually we could see small dots high in the air.  it wasn’t long before they came soaring over our heads and landed in the paddock beside the spectators.  On getting his breath back Gary said ” the free fall was only a minute, but i was glad when the shoot when up”…. Phil said” it was great, but my stomach needs to recover now”

Two months on from the Skydive we are please to announce that the total raised was £1960.00.

We thank both Phil and Gary for your support of HOPS
