Why do I want to jump out of an aeroplane at 11,000 feet? That’s exactly what my wife Manda and my three kids Daniel, Jenni and Lindsay are asking.

My answer is simple, The Fed is an amazing organisation looking after the community from young to old.

Like all charities, demand outstrips supply and The Fed is desperate for funds and my family has had a long history of involvement with local charities. My father, Harold, was instrumental in getting Manchester Jewish Social Services together with the Benevolent Society and forming what is now known as The Fed.

So when I was asked if I would take part in a sponsored Sky Dive it was a no brainer, especially as my Aunty Sybil up until recently was living in Moorview’s Supported Independent Living accommodation at Heathlands Village based at The Fed so I saw first hand the wonderful care she received.

Please do what you can to help me smash my target.
