Katy's Skydive

Katy officially launched our new charity partnership with a daring skydive raising money for teenagers and young adults living with cancer.

Katy took part in a thrilling tandem skydive, freefalling from over 10,000 feet in the air at a breathtaking 120mph until her parachute opened at 5000 feet for a smooth descent back to the ground. 

Katy made the jump at the Hinton Skydiving Centre near Oxford.

Katy pledged to perform the daredevil feat to mark the partnership between Help a Capital Child – 102.2 Capital FM’s charity – and Teenage Cancer Trust.  Over the next year, Help a Capital Child will be working with Teenage Cancer Trust to raise money for young people with cancer and to fund specialist units in hospitals across Birmingham. Providing state-of-the-art medical facilities for teenagers living with cancer, the units give them the opportunity to meet other young people in a similar situation and the best possible chance of a positive outcome.
