Sky’s the limit for those Redditch folk who dare

Tristan Harris 24th Jan, 2018 Updated: 29th Jan, 2018

THRILL-SEEKERS looking for something daring to do in 2018 can undertake a charity skydive for the Primrose Hospice.

The charity is looking for brave people to do the sponsored 10,000ft freefall jump where they raise at least £395. They then get to jump for free and the Primrose will receive £145. Any cash raised above that amount will also go straight to the charity.

Emma Williams, the Primrose Hospice’s fund-raising manager for community engagement, said: “Parachuting for Primrose is a challenge of a lifetime and we are always looking for participants to sign up and support us here at the Primrose.

“We only receive 16.4 per cent of our funding from the Redditch and Bromsgrove CCG so we rely heavily on donations from our supporters and simply would not be able to continue to provide our services for free to our patients and their families without their support.”
