High-flying Burnham-On-Sea father and son complete 15,000ft sky dive

A Burnham-On-Sea estate agent and his son have completed a daring 13,000ft sky dive for charity.

Edward Creswick, managing director of CJ Hole in Burnham, and his son Thomas performed the sky dive for Breast Cancer Now.

Edward persuaded his son, who also works at the firm, to jump out of the plane too!

Tom told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It was such an amazing feeling during the free-fall, with the wind in my face, knowing I was dropping back down to earth."

"I felt slightly ill afterwards, but incredibly glad and proud of myself for doing it. It was amazing knowing that doing this jump had helped raise money for such an amazing charity. Thank you to everyone who has donated."

Edward was excited, but still nervous, before the jump. The organisation Buzz Skydiving are a well-organised, professional group and their tandem partners Adam and Jason had over 14,000 jumps between them, which they found very reassuring.

Edward added: "The jump was 15,000 ft, 5,000ft higher than my previous jumps. The free-fall lasted one minute before the parachute was deployed. It was an amazing feeling flying through the air, taking in views towards Weymouth, the English Channel, Bristol Channel and the Welsh coastline."

"Tom was apprehensive but tried not to show it. He loved his first jump although felt a little queasy for a couple of hours afterwards."

"We were both immensely proud to represent our chose charity and the CJ Hole Brand. We are very grateful for so many messages of support and the generous donations made."

"Tom can't wait to do it again and as long as the Dr is happy to keep letting me go up I would be up for another go in the future for a worthy cause."

There is still time to donate and help the CJ Hole team reach their £3,500 target for Breast Cancer Now by sponsoring them at www.justgiving.com/CJHole-Burnham25, or popping in to see them at 64 High Street in Burnham-On-Sea.
