Mayor of Dartford Sky Hire

On Saturday 25th April 2015 the Mayor of Dartford Cllr Avtar Sandhu MBE took part in a Tandem Sky Dive Mayor of Dartford Sky Dive to help raise additional funds for his 31 different charities, groups and organisations. The jump, which took place at Headcorn Airfield, was undertaken by the Headcorn Parachute Club who ensured the Mayor was safe and secure.

The charity event was also undertaken by a range of Dartfordians who looked to support the Mayor and raise more funds for the great charities. The jump was from 12,000 feet and the Mayor reached the ground after 4.5 minutes.

The total amount raised so far from this sky dive is £2590 which was through donations from local businesses and members of the community. If you would like to further assist with the fundraising, you can donate via

As well as thanking FVRepro for their printing/advertising, the Mayor of Dartford said, 'this is the best challenge that I have taken part in and it was Marilyn Keating from CVS who challenged me to do it. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Marilyn Keating, Kim Cooper, Sarah, Sean O'Reilly from Dartford Valley RFC, Harps Sandhu and Manjot Rai for their support and daring willingness to jump with me.'
