Tak­ing a dive to raise funds

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PEOPLE IN PICTURES -

A FEAR­LESS team jumped from a plane to raise funds for char­ity.

Matt Rose from Great Mis­senden and Matt Piercy from Prest­wood,

pic­tured, joined 12 other peo­ple in spon­sored sky­dives dur­ing June, rais­ing money for Ren­nie Grove Hos­pice Care.

On Sun­day 21 June and Satur­day 27 June, the brave 14 each took the leap from 13,000 feet over an air field in Brack­ley, strapped to an in­struc­tor.

Di­rec­tor of fundrais­ing, Gil­lian Bar­nett, said: “We’re so grate­ful to all the divers who take on this mas­sive per­sonal chal­lenge to raise funds for us.

“Many peo­ple choose a sky dive as a way of remembering some­one spe­cial, fac­ing their own per­sonal fears to raise money for the char­ity that cared for their loved one so that other fam­i­lies can ben­e­fit in the fu­ture.”

This year the team looks set to bring in a fur­ther £5,000 – enough to fund 250 hours of spe­cial­ist nurs­ing care in a pa­tient’s home.
