A leap of faith for Peter
6:00pm Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
A DARING man took a leap of faith to raise cash for the British Heart Foundation.
Peter Lymer, of Droitwich, jumped out of a plane at 10,000 feet to complete a tandem skydive at Tilstock, Shropshire, to raise £565 for the charity.
Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer.
For more than 50 years the BHF has pioneered research that’s transformed the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions.
Mr Lymer said: “I did the skydive for my mum as she recently had a pacemaker fitted at the age of 87 and although she has her good and bad days, she is improving.
“I wanted to do something challenging and inspiring to help the BHF continue saving lives. It was a great day and I would recommend it to anyone who is fit and healthy enough to do it. All money raised from the skydive will support the charity in the fight against heart disease.”
Anyone who would like to find out more about organising their own fund-raising event, or is interested in volunteering, should call 0121 6615100.
