Daring Duo's parachute plunge for cancer charity header image

High-flying duo Hazel Morris and Kris Perks have raised more than £2,600 to fight pancreatic cancer after a fund-raising free-fall from 14,000 feet.

Skydiving with an experienced tandem instructor, the plucky pair hit speeds of around 120mph before landing safely at Beccles Airfield in Suffolk.

Hazel said: “The experience was exhilarating. I thought it would be a bit scary, but you get such an adrenaline rush you don’t feel any fear at all. When you reach the ground you don’t feel relief, you feel sad it’s over and want to go up again.”

Kris added: “It’s hard to describe what an amazing feeling you get when you’re in free fall. It’s the ultimate thrill ride.”

Kris organised the event as a tribute to the memory of his father-in-law Krzysztof Michalak who recently passed away after a long fight against pancreatic cancer.

He said: “Hazel and I would like to thank everyone who supported our fund-raising campaign and helped us raise such an impressive sum of money. We had a great time and managed to celebrate Krzysztof’s life with a donation to a very worthy cause."
