Marie sky dive

Marie Webber Sky Dives for CDK and the Taxi Charity

Well Folks, what a fantastic Bank Holiday weekend it was.  For once the weather was perfect! Perfect to jump out of an aeroplane going over 200 mph at 15,000ft to do your first ever parachute jump. That’s just what Marie Webber did.

Marie came to our fundraiser back in March and was either kind or mad enough to bid £220 for the pleasure. Her Great uncle Frank Pendergast was in the Parachute Regiment and we were all looking forward to seeing him and hear his thoughts on what Marie was about to do. Sadly Frank had a bit of a fall the night before and was unable to come, but after a couple of nights in hospital we are pleased to hear he is well on the mend and we all wish him a speedy recovery.

Undeterred Marie was up for it and to be honest a bit of advice, don’t play cards with her as she has a great poker face and was showing no real signs of fear.

Quite a few family and friends had come along to Headcorn Skydive to watch and she had her own fan club.

Well sure enough at about 9.30 am Marie was all chuted, buckled and looked great in the skull cap.  It took about 10mins for her to reach the jump height and sure enough out she jumped to the squeals and delight of the watching crowd.  There were a few other jumpers but we had been told the colour of her chute so we could see her clearly. All the others seemed to come down quite smoothly but Marie was spinning and swirling everywhere.  Apparently, someone had said to her tandem partner that she would like that lol.

Thankfully she landed safely and carried her chute back triumphantly to her waiting fans, smiling from ear to ear.

Well done Marie, a lot of people claim they would do this but only few do.  A web page had been set up to sponsor her and she raised another £500 on the day.

Fantastic, thank you peeps.

Then it was all back to the Webbers for a few beers and wicked BBQ.
