Alan's ready for the big drop.
Alan Batchelder, of Drayton Court, Woodloes Park, is to take part in a bungee jumping extravaganza.
It will be held during the Godiva Weekend on June 5 at War Memorial Park in Coventry.
The Royal British Legion has a stall at the show and has got together with the UK Bungee Club to stage an event to raise money for ex-servicemen and women and their families.
Mr Batchelder, aged 44, said: ''A bungee jump or parachute jump is something that has always appealed to me.
''As a child I can remember going to Coventry swimming baths and climbing to the top of a diving board. It looked a long way down at only 35ft but I am now looking at taking the plunge from a 165ft tower!''
Mr Batchelder is appealing for sponsors for his dare-devil act. Anyone interested can contact him on 01926 490221.
