Charity Bungee Jump!
On May 14th Flipside's Adam Walder will be putting his life on the line in Switzerland to equal the World Record Bungee Jump at the Verzasca Dam - as made famous by Mr James Bond himself in Goldeneye.
This bungee jump will be in aid of Naomi House Children's Hospice. At 220m in height, it is the tallest public single cord bungee jump in the world from a structure that doesn't use guide ropes. When this jump was filmed for Goldeneye the world record for the highest bungee jump was broken at that time. The jump is a pure freefall of 7.5 seconds.
Naomi House childrens hospice is a charity that provides support to children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families. For more information on Naomi House and all the fantastic work they do, please visit their website: http://www.naomihouse.org.uk
All donations are gratefully received!! To donate please visit Adam's JustGiving page at http://www.justgiving.com/AdamWalder
