THE team at KCP are enthusiasts and generally up for a charitable challenge but when this year's challenge was announced there was a gasp and general silence before two VERY brave souls stepped forward (or maybe the rest just stepped back - the jury is out on that!)
However, the courageous couple of KCP champs, Gary Parks and Chris Bonsall, have stood firm and will be taking the plunge off Killiecrankie Bridge in Perthshire on March 18 when KCP goes Bungee!
The charities chosen to benefit from their bravery are the local heroes Islay Dogs Rescue in Cumnock and the amazing Macmillan Cancer Support.
Chris admitted this week that he was “feeling a bit apprehensive” although he also confessed that a bungee jump was something the had had on his to do list for some time.
The Islay Dog Rescue charity was Chris' choice because he and wife Mhairi are real dog lovers who share their home with an English Setter, which they show, and a couple of “wired to the moon” Spaniels.
“The dogs are really our children,” said Chris, “and we know the lady who runs the rescue centre and very much admire the work she does.”
Both Gary and Chris were members of the KCP team who completed the Tough Mudder a couple of years ago and are happy to fly the KCP flag in this latest intrepid adventure. They chose Killicrankie for the bungee jump because Chris wanted to take the plunge off the bridge rather than a city based crane jump.
The aim is to raise at least £500 to share between the two charities. The Just Giving link is http://bit.ly/2EahK4R
