I’m doing Britian’s Largest Bungee Jump!

Dear Everybody

In just a couple of days I’ll be doing Britain’s Largest Bungee Jump. This means falling 400ft, in 5.3seconds, reaching just over 90mph. Check out the video below.

Heights generally freak me out – as does being out of control.

I’m doing this to raise money for Llandudno Youth For Christ, which is the youth charity that I run in North Wales, UK. We do amazing work but are always struggling for funds.

Please pray, watch, like, share and consider giving to support this important work!

Give here!

Thank you!
