Charity seeks heroes to take a dive

Written by Peter Davison.

Business Against Poverty is looking for daredevils willing to throw themselves from an aeroplane for charity.

A skydive will take place at Netheravon Airfield on Saturday, May 12. Leading the charge will be Business Against Poverty non-executive director and trustee Dick Beath, a former British Infantry major.

Anyone who wants to take part in the skydive will be required to pay a £50 deposit and raise £400 in sponsorship. All funds will go towards the Melksham-based charity's work improving the lives of people living in desperate conditions around the world.
