Transform the lives of people with disabilities by taking on a challenge in aid of National Star.

Daring to bare for charity

Daredevil Steve Simpson decided that he wanted to do something memorable to support young people with complex disabilities – so he jumped out of an aircraft at 1,500 feet wearing nothing but a pair of pink pants and a parachute.

Steve, who is working towards becoming a full-time skydive instructor, understands what it’s like for parents of young people with disabilities.

‘One of my sons has a mild form of autism. I understand what it’s like for parents of children with more serious forms of autism. It’s very difficult, and National Star do an amazing job,’ says Steve.

Steve, who teamed his pink pants with aviator sunglasses, a safety helmet and a parachute, raised an incredible £1,200 from his skydive.
