THREE men from the Westbury area raised £2,600 from a sponsored skydive earlier this month.
Scott Howse of Westbury, Andy Morton (Dilton Marsh), and Simon Carter (Warminster) all jumped from the plane to raise money for Dorothy House Hospice Care.
Speaking about the jump, Scott said, “I was a little bit nervous before, but not as bad as I thought I’d be. Simon was the most nervous out of the three of us. Out of the 8 people on the plane, Andy was second to jump and I went last, just after Simon.
“Now it’s done I feel amazed that I’ve done it and I would definitely do it again. So would Andy and Simon, it was an amazing feeling.”
The trio, originally from Dilton Marsh, are close to hitting their £3,000 fundraising target, having already reached £2,600. The money will go to Dorothy House, who cared for Simon’s mother before she recently passed away.
Scott said, “We chose Dorothy House because it was a big part of Simon’s mum’s life. She worked there and did lots of fundraising events herself, but sadly passed away due to cancer a few months ago. She was an amazing woman who would go out of her way to help people, and she didn’t mind 10-15 of us playing football in her garden most nights after school.”
The trio would like to thank all who supported them.
