A FUNDRAISER aimed high to help secure more than £600 to fund new play equipment by jumping out of a plane from 10,000ft.
Father-of-three, Jason Williams, made the charity tandem skydive and raised funds to go towards bringing better play equipment to the Chapel Lane play area in his home town of Chirk
But despite admitting a fear of heights before the challenge, Jason, 28, said he would do it again in a heartbeat.
“When I was up there it wasn’t too bad,” he said. “It was getting ready that was the hard part, plus there were two Jason Williams’ taking part so when I went to get ready it wasn’t me.
“I’ve never been so nervous – I’ve never done anything like it before in my whole life, but now I would do it again and I’d recommend it to anyone who has a fear of heights like me.
“The only bit I didn’t like was after the parachute opened he loosened me off. It was only about four inches, but it felt like a mile.”
His wife, Joanne, who put Jason forward for the jump, added: “He didn’t speak to me at all the night before or the morning of the jump and I thought ‘he still blames me for putting him forward for it’.
“But once he’d completed the jump the buzz in him was unreal – he was shaking with adrenaline. It was amazing.
“Quite a few of his friends and family went to see him and once he had completed it he wanted to do it again.”
Jason added: “I am very pleased with how much was raised. I don’t think Joanne has put me forward for anything else – I hope not at least.”
