Volunteers take the plunge for St Luke’s Hospice
More than 30 people raised £18,000 for a hospice when they took the plunge in a charity skydive.
The group jumped from 10,000ft at Hinton Airfield last week in aid of St Luke’s Hospice .
The money raised will go towards the care of terminally ill patients at the hospice in Kenton.
Volunteers Tracy McCoy, 37, was one of those who jumped. She said: , ‘My mum was in St Luke’s and it was her last wish that I did the skydive for the Hospice.
“St Luke’s made her very happy in the last week of her life. I just loved the skydive so much.
“I was told all the time that, yes ,I can do this and I know my mum and dad are keeping me safe. I would like to say a very big thank you to all the staff at St Luke’s for caring for my mum."
Ewa Okun, who jumped out of a plane for the second, said: "I took part because last year one of my friends was dying at the hospice and the care that the staff gave was excellent.
“The skydive was very exciting and one of the best experiences of my life and I will definitely keep supporting St Luke’s Hospice.”
