On 1 May 2019, Chelsea Pensioner Mike Smith will be attempting his 100th parachute jump at an event to raise funds for the Taxi Charity.
Mike will be joined by two Taxi Charity committee members' wives, Susy Goodwin and Anne Parsons. It will be the first tandem skydive for both Susy and Anne who will be in the capable hands of the famous Red Devils and their jumping hero, Mike Smith. Susy and Anne are raising funds for forthcoming Taxi Charity trips, including this year’s 75th anniversary D-Day visit in June, when the charity will take 30 veterans, in London black cabs, to Normandy. Mike Smith says: “I can’t wait to complete my 100th jump. It doesn’t seem two minutes since I was doing my first one! I am delighted to be joined by first timers Susy Goodwin and Anne Parsons, two of the Taxi Charity committee members’ wives who are raising funds for this amazing charity that does so much to support veterans from all conflicts. My advice to them is to enjoy every second, and breathe.”
