Myles takes to the sky to assist those who are living with cancer

AN ALDWICK man has leapt out of a plane to help cancer patients.

 

Myles Michell, 18, took to the sky for cancer charity, CancerWise.

 

He completed his tandem skydive, above Old Sarum near Salisbury, from the UK’s highest altitude of 15,000 feet.

 

He hopes his achievement will raise £1,000 to help CancerWise provide its services at its Chichester base.

 

Myles, a team leader with Butlin’s, said: “My mother, Melanie, is a reflexologist and has been involved with CancerWise for seven years so I know all about the good work the charity offers those affected by cancer and their families.

 

“I’ve completed a charity bike ride from Bristol to Bognor before, but skydiving was something that I had always wanted to do.

 

“It was an amazing experience, something that I’ll always remember and, hopefully, help raise awareness of the work carried out by CancerWise, an independent charity which depends entirely on fundraising and grants.”

 

CancerWise provides a range of free support services from its drop-in centre close to Chichester city centre for people diagnosed with cancer, their families and carers. It offers free practical, emotional and social support through complementary therapies, counselling and social support.
