He said: "Having only ever flown a few times within Europe I was looking for a fundraising challenge to set myself in the new year to support Helen & Douglas House.

"I have worked for Helen & Douglas House for over seven years and see the daily work carried out by staff and volunteers to support the quality of life for patients and their families.

He added: "The level of care and commitment is amazing."

Oxford Mail:

Mr Morgan will do the skydive with friend of 35 years Phil Riding.

The pair are aiming to raise £500 between them and have already almost reached their target.

The skydive will take place on Sunday, March 31, at Hinton-on-the-Hedges Airfield at Brackley, Northamptonshire.

A qualified instructor will be strapped to all those taking part in the 13,000ft fall.
