On Wednesday 19th May 10 brave souls took to the skies over Cambridge in part of the more dynamic and exhilarating fundraising events of the year. The group from Osmani Trust each performed a tandem skydive jumping out of a plane at 13,000ft. They freefell 7,000 feet from the heavens before deploying their parachutes.
For all the participants this was a new experience and many were excited as well as apprehensive at the same time. There were also fears that if the weather conditions were poor then the whole thing may be called off as was the case in November last year. Thankfully it was a beautiful sunny day and everyone was able to perform the jump as planned
Jahid Ahmed, one of the Osmani Trust High Fliers said, “I was really worried as we took off in the plane, and doubts over my sanity crept into mind as we climbed higher and higher into the sky. However the moment I jumped off the plane the adrenaline took over and it was sheer joy. I thank Osmani Trust for this phenomenal experience, one that I will treasure for a long time.”
Over £1,700 was raised in aid of the new Osmani Centre. Construction is due to start next month with a completion date targeted towards the end of next year.
