Can you take on the leap of faith?

Ham&High daredevils are being urged to join a national charity as it takes over an airfield to stage one of the largest skydive events of the year to help sick and disabled youngsters.

More than 100 members of the general public are expected to take a leap of faith in "Fear Factor" on Sunday October 4 at Hinton Airfield, Oxfordshire, to raise money for Caudwell Children. The Charity, which is being supported by the Ham&High and its parent company Archant London, aims to raise thousands of pounds to help change the lives of children by providing individual donations of specialist equipment, treatment and therapy as well as its annual 'Destination Dreams' holiday for families coping with a child's terminal illness.

Companies, groups of friends and individuals who sign up will each take part in a nerve-testing tandem jump from 10,000 feet and participants who raise over �465 will also get to jump for free.

Last year the Charity hosted a similar event which raised over �10,000 to help improve the lives of sick and disabled children throughout the UK. More than 50 participants took part and they were joined by music and television personalities from TV shows, Shipwrecked, CBBC and Emmerdale. Further celebrity support is expected at this year's event.

Trudi Beswick, Chief Executive Officer for Caudwell Children said, "We are looking for people in the local area to get on board and try something new and exciting that will test their willpower and nerve.

Their fundraising efforts will directly help to change a child's life and in return they will experience one of the most adrenaline fuelled sports on earth. It's also a fantastic team building exercise for companies or sports teams in the area.

It is going to be one of the largest skydive events to take place and it will be incredibly rewarding and memorable for anyone who gets to take part."
