A Just Giving page for the jump states: “We’re kick starting this summers fundraising for the Ventnor Skatepark Project, to get a purpose built concrete park for the Island.

“The Ventnor Skatepark Charity has started the first phase with planning permission looking to be submitted shortly, and funding applications being completed. The more money we can raise ourselves the better chance we have of getting closer to the £150,000 we need for an awesome park.

“John Cattle, chair of the charity group, founder of Wight Trash skate company and JC Skate Club will be doing a sky-dive (tandem) on the August 7.

“He is much more comfortable on four wheels than plummeting from the sky (anyone who has seen him at the top of a vert ramp will know heights really are not his thing). So please show your support by donating a few quid.

“We would love to get the Ventnor Skatepark Project finalised and built by Spring 2019, every £1 donated really does help. With continued cuts to services on the Island, all youth funding cut, getting an up to date, free to use skate facility would be great for the Island.”
