Two members of staff at Gibraltar House in London are planning to throw themselves out of a perfectly serviceable aircraft at 15,000 feet in order to raise funds for the Calpe House Appeal.

Faye Burfoot and Edwina O’Mahony will each take part in tandem skydives which will involve a full minute of freefall and which will reach speeds of around 130mph. The jumps will take place on the morning of Saturday 20th August near Seville.

Faye and Edwina are hoping that Gibraltarians will sponsor them in their fund-raising attempts for the Calpe House Appeal.
