A GROUP of daredevils have raised more than £2,000 by skydiving 10,000ft for a disability charity.

A group of four fundraisers summoned their courage to take on a tandem skydive to raise funds for the Enham Trust last month, being sponsored to the tune of £2,303.77.

The group consisted of individuals from Enham Trust and Trust In Soda, a digital recruitment agency based in London, which has chosen Enham Trust as its Charity of the Year.

Simon Strong, one of the skydivers, said:“I did my first freefall jump over 20 years ago, and having a disability, I never thought I would have the chance again. With Enham Trust, I had the chance to experience the terror of jumping again, and the chance to raise £580 for an amazingly worthwhile charity.”

Chloe Plummer, income generation administrator, who oversaw the day, said: “The skydivers had great weather for the jump and they all thoroughly enjoyed the day. We are so pleased that everyone collectively raised over £2000. This amazing amount will contribute to the vital work that Enham Trust does, so a huge thank you and well done go to the whole group.”

The trust will be staging another skydive on Saturday, September 1. Those interested in taking on the skydive should go to enhamtrust.org.uk/charity-skydive or call 01264 345 800.
