Have your say

A CRICKET coach from Billingborough is completing his first ever bungee jump on Monday for charity.

Dave Newman is completing the 175ft bungee jump at Billingborough Cricket Club’s fun day to raise money for Whizz Kidz, a charity which helps children with disabilities.

Dave said: “This charity means an awful lot to me, because I coach a girl who is disabled at my cricket club, who is now able to catch and hit a ball.

“I have always wanted to coach sports to disabled children, but never fulfilled that dream so now I’m going to give something back.”

Dave is also running the London Marathon in 2013 for the charity. The event starts at 10.3Oam. To donated visit
