A local man is taking to the skies as he plans to perform a charity skydive, in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

38-Year-Old Dean Large who lives in Sheldon has planned the 13,000 foot tandem skydive after losing his father to Lung cancer last year, and has already raised £1,300 but is looking for more support:

“When people have spoke to me about it, they’ve all said that I’m a brave man but I just wanted to do something for my dad, I was looking forward to it when I planned it but I’m actually getting quite nervous now, I’m scared of heights as well so I really want to face my fear along with raising money for Marie Curie.”

Dean is hoping to raise £2,000 from the jump to help those suffering with Cancer.

If you would like to make a donation to the cause, visit Dean’s donation page at www.justgiving.com/deanlarge, any donations no matter how big or small are welcome.
