96-106 Capital FM jock in tandem skydive

Capital FM’s Help a Capital Child in the East Midlands has launched a year-long partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust.

The support will start next week when 96-106 Capital FM presenter Pete Allen will embark on a tandem skydive from 10,000 feet.

Pete is set to perform the dare-devil feat whilst strapped to a professional instructor, freefalling at 120mph until the parachute opens at 5,000 feet for a smooth descent back to the ground.

Pete told RadioToday.co.uk: “I’m honoured to be able to contribute to the great work of Help a Capital Child which will benefit Teenage Cancer Trust over the next year. We’re all looking forward to seeing the difference the fundraising and awareness will make for young people living with cancer in the East Midlands. Bring on the skydive – I can’t wait!!”

Help a Capital Child is encouraging listeners to sign-up for tandem skydives in order to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.
