The photo is of me last year - just about to do a fancy dress zipwire from the roof of the Baltic Museum and Gallery across the Tyne to the Newcastle Quayside, in aid of the Stroke Association - along with my friends from the 21 Hospitality Group.
It was a scary moment when I had to sit on the ledge waiting to 'zip-off' - I felt as though my bum had become stuck to it!
It was an amazing feeling as I dropped off the edge of the building and literally flew through the air - what a blast - and certainly something I would do again!
Needless to say, when Councillor John Hardy, Mayor of Peterlee Town Council, asked me if I would do a sponsored Parachute Jump - I said yes straight away.
John has a number of nominated charities that he has been raising money for throughout his term of office and include HELP FOR HEROES, MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT AND THE HARTLEPOOL & DISTRICT HOSPICE (where my Grandma Laura died peacefully when I was only 5)
This jump will be the last charity event for John before he hands his robes over to the new Mayor in mid May. Any money you can afford to give will be gratefully received by these very worthy charities.
The next bit of information is really important, as it's about how you can send your sponsorship (as quickly as you can) through to the town council if you don't want to do it via one of the individual charities I have registered with for this event.
Please make cheques payable to Peterlee Town Council and address them to:
Ms Wendy Jeffrey, Mayors Sectretary, Peterlee Town Council, Shotton Hall, Old Shotton, Peterlee, Co. Durham, SR8 2PA - please write on the back of the cheque 'Ryan McDonnell Sponsored Parachute Jump' - and please let me know, so that I've got an idea of how much money I raise as I go along.
A big thank you for reading my profile - I hope you can sponsor me. THANKS
