A site manager will confront his fear of falling when he does a sponsored sky dive to raise money for a children’s outdoor play area at his workplace.
Daniel Tester’s mum bought him tickets for the parachute jump as a present for his 40th birthday because she thought it would be funny to see the look on his face.
He is aiming to raise about £800 to go towards climbing equipment at Seashells Children and Families Centre, in Rose Street, Sheerness, where he works.
The father of two said: “I’ve never wanted to do anything like this. It’s the worst thing I can possibly imagine doing, to be honest.
“I thought I would never get the opportunity to do it again – I would never even want to do it again – so I thought I would do it for a good cause.
“At least it makes it bearable then.”
The Grovehurst Road, Kemsley, resident added: “Everyone has been so generous so far.”
Designs for the outdoor play equipment will be shortlisted down to three or four and then the children at the centre will get to choose their favourite.
The sky dive will take place on Saturday, July 12, at Beccles in Suffolk.
