FUNDRAISERS are gearing up to take part in a skydive in aid of Barnsley Hospice next month.

Two members of the hospice’s fundraising team, Fin McKenzie and Mark Hanson, shared their excitement at taking part in the jump from 15,000ft on July 10.

Fin said: "Barnsley Hospice means so much to me, and I can't wait to take on my first ever skydive to raise funds to support their work."

A spokesperson for the Hospice added: “Skydiving for the hospice offers the perfect opportunity for the thrill-seekers amongst us to tick an item off their bucket list whilst raising money to support people living life life-limiting illnesses and those close to them.

“Taking place at Skydive Hibaldstow, our charity skydive invites people to complete a 15,000ft tandem skydive, taking in views of the scenic Lincolnshire landscape as you fly back to earth.”

Sign-up for the event is now closed, but those wanting to arrange another date to jump can fill out a form on the Barnsley Hospice website or email
