Charity skydive

Adam Wilkinson-Caddel, from Indian Queens in Cornwall, had a very special 30th birthday surprise on Saturday 20 February 2010, when his wife Sam arranged for him to take part in a charity parachute jump for Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK.

Adam’s exhilarating tandem skydive took part at The Cornish Parachute Club at Perranporth Airfield, St Agnes, where he was taken up to 10,000 feet before jumping from the plane and enjoying the huge adrenaline rush.

Make-A-Wish grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses and it is still possible to support Adam at www.justgiving.com/Adam-Wilkinson-Caddel to help more special wishes come true.

Adam’s wife Sam Caddel says: “Adam has always talked about skydiving so I thought I’d give him a push and book it for his 30th birthday. To give him more incentive I decided to ask his friends and family to donate to Make-A-Wish.

“Make-A-Wish is such a lovely charity. We have children of our own and to help put a smile on an ill child’s face is a very special thing.”

Adam says: “I had a brilliant time. Luckily I had perfect weather and I really enjoyed it. This is the best 30th birthday present and I’m thrilled that my jump has raised money for such a wonderful charity.”

There are currently 20,000 children and young people in the UK fighting a life-threatening illness. This year alone around 1,000 children will turn to Make-A-Wish to experience the magic of a Make-A-Wish wish. To grant all these, Make-A-Wish needs to raise at least £5 million in 2010.
