Clive did it!

“The rush was extreme, couldn’t believe the speed as I dived into the abyss.”

Our intrepid jumper, Clive Wilson.

Yesterday, on Lisa’s birthday, Clive did the highest bungy in the world, jumping from 134 meters above the rugged Nevis River in Queenstown, New Zealand. Not many people would have the nerves to do it, Lisa would have been very proud.

See the video and more photos of Clive’s jump here…

Clive to do the highest bungee jump in the world

As you know, Clive and Trish are currently in New Zealand, following Lisa’s footsteps across the country she found to be truly amazing.  Whilst she was in Queenstown N.Z, Lisa did a free-fall parachute jump and also the biggest bungee jump in the world from the Nevis high wire of 134 Metres.

The video she sent home is now shown as an inspirational DVD to young people to encourage them to go and live their dreams.

And on Lisa’s 31st birthday, March 15th, Clive will make the jump himself.

As you know, Lisa’s charity to date has raised over £180,000 and changed the lives of some forty young students that it has given bursaries to – young students who have had to demonstrate how they have overcome adversity and why they need additional funding to help them with their educational dreams and ambitions.

Clive and Trish to follow Lisa’s footsteps across New Zealand

Following the theft of Lisa’s journal and subsequent return in Dec 2008, Trish and Clive have decided to follow Lisa’s footsteps by traveling to New Zealand in February 2010. They expect the journey to be full of emotion as they follow Lisa’s maps and her adventures as depicted in the journal, but they also hope to find the same inspiration that Lisa found in such a beautiful country.
