Adrian Pavey Takes To The Sky at 135mph

Adrian Pavey is taking to the sky at 135 mph and needs your help!

 

"It all started as a Christmas present from my wife Steph who gifted me a Wingwalk experience when I said I wanted to do something different. And this is certainly different. Anyone who knows me will know how far I'm prepared to go to help others, but cruising 135mph at 500ft is certainly the biggest challenge I've ever undertaken. 

"The reason I'm doing such a crazy thing is to raise target funds of £3000 for two amazing charities. Myton Hospice and PAPYRUS.

"These are two amazing charities, one to help sufferers and their families by easing the journey to end of life, the other to prevent young people from committing suicide.
 Myton Hospice is a charity which is very close to my heart as they cared for my mum in the last days of her life. The hospice provides compassionate end of life care, centering on patient wellbeing and enabling more quality time with their loved ones. Last year they supported more than 1,400 people and their families, in their three hospices, via patient and family support services, and in the community through Myton at Home. Each year they have to raise £8.8 million to continue providing care.


PAPYRUS is a community of people with the shared vision that many young suicides are preventable. Suicide is the biggest killer of young people in the UK; 1,666 people under 35 took their own life in 2016. They aim to create a society free of the stigma surrounding suicide, with the resources to support young people who may be struggling. PAPYRUS believes suicide need not be the inevitable outcome of feeling suicidal and that with the right help, support, and advice, together we can save young lives.
"Anyone who wants to cheer me on (or laugh at my facial expressions as I fly by) is welcome to come along to RFC Rendcomb Airfield (GL7 7DF) on the 30th May. 

"PHOTOS NOT ACCURATE and I certainly won't be looking as glamourous as this: think more like dog with its face out of the window of a fast moving car."
