Sutton teenagers raise £1,900 for hospice after completing parachute jump
10:00am Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
Sutton teenagers Rachel Hargreaves and Rebecca Barrett have handed over a cheque for £1,907 – the proceeds of a parachute jump.
The 18-year-old friends decided to take the leap in aid of Manorlands because they had family and friends cared for by the Oxenhope hospice.
The pair originally planned to skydive in August soon after completing their A-levels at South Craven School in Cross Hills.
But their jump at the Black Knights Parachute Centre in Lancaster had to be cancelled at the last minute due to the weather conditions.
Manorlands fundraiser Andrew Wood said the girls, who eventually did the jump on September 8, had raised a fantastic amount of money.
He said: “Rachel and Rebecca have done brilliantly and the girls really enjoyed the experience.
“They both recommend this as a great fun way to raise funds for our work at the hospice.”
