A TEEN who plunged thousands of feet from a plane said the exhilarating experience made him feel “invincible”.

Lewis Leer, 18, of Grangewood Park Avenue, Burnham, hoped to raise £500 by completing a 13,000ft sponsored skydive for Cancer Research UK.

The travel clerk smashed his target by raising just over £1,000 after his dare-devil leap at Beccles Airfield in Suffolk.

Lewis said he was really pleased with the outcome.

He said: “Strangely enough, I wasn’t nervous leading up to the day or even on the day itself.

“The feeling I got from the second I jumped out from the plane was amazing – I never wanted it to end.

“Luckily for me, the sun was shining so the views I got to take in were breathtaking.

“The adrenalin that I got from that experience made me feel invincible.

“If you are willing to throw yourself out of a plane there isn’t much you couldn’t do.

“I am now considering doing a level one course in skydiving with the same company, giving me 18 jumps and an end target of jumping out of the plane unaided.”

The teenager added: “The best thing I would take from this experience would be that I would do it all again whether it was for charity or for fun.”

Lewis was supported on the day by his mum Hayley Stubbings, step-dad Tom Stubbings, brother Riley Stubbings, nan Margaret and grandad Peter.

Lewis also thanked his work colleagues at Travelsmith, Burnham Bakery and Fisk Fire Group for their generous donations to the fundraiser.
