I wouldn’t normally blog non tech related stuff on my blog but I decided this year I’d get involved with the Movember campaign to raise funds and awareness of Testicular & Prostate Cancer. I was going to do it last year but for one reason or another didn’t. Yup, serious business is cancer so I’m doing my bit!.

Having gathered all monies in finally, I raised just over £400 for my charity jump!. Not bad but had hoped for better. Thanks to everyone that sponsored me and for those that didn’t, be ashamed!!.

I completed my charity Solo RAPS Static Line Parachute jump in Lancaster at the Black Knights parachute centre on the 12th September in aid of Pancreatic cancer.

Remember it is for a good cause!!. Continue reading
