skydive for british heart foundation

National managed print service provider Midshire® is thrilled to congratulate its very own Mike Zadoroznyj, who completed a death defying skydive to raise money for the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

The Black Knights Parachute Centre flew Mike to a breath-taking 15,000ft, the highest skydive in the UK, where he dived for 60 seconds through the sky. Show your support and donate all you can by visiting Mike’s JustGiving page here:

Photocopier Engineer at Midshire, Mike said: “This was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done.It’s funny because you can’t help but fear for your life that split second after you jump, even though you know you’re in the best, most professional hands possible.”

Based just 15 minutes from Lancaster, the British Parachute Association affiliated Black Knight Parachute Centre has been providing those who dare with accelerated freefall and static line courses for over 50 years.

Mike added: “I’d really like to thank my tandem instructor Mark for all his hard work in getting me trained, and also Levi who jumped with me to film the entire thing! Any money I can get raised for the Heart Foundation would be incredible, please, please donate!”

After conquering his fear, Mike plans to go back to the Black Knight Parachute Centre in August for a nerve-racking solo static line jump. Watch this space!

Following CPR training for all staff, Midshire has raised over £7,000 for the BHF over the past 12 months. Initiatives include: a coast-to-coast-and-back 290-mile static bike ride, bake sales, the Wilmslow Festive 10k, walked up Kinder Scout, and hosting a golf day attended by Midshire customers and partners.
