Dr Richard Jenkins will take part in his first skydive in aid of Barnsley Hospital Charity and Rotherham Hospital, where he doubles up as its chief.
A consultant specialising in diabetes and endocrinology, Dr Jenkins has set a target to raise £1,000 from Thursday’s jump, which will take place in Hibaldstow, Lincolnshire.
He said: “Both charities are very close to my heart.
“We have all been through one of the most difficult periods in the NHS with the Covid pandemic and, although I’m feeling a mixture of excitement and fear about the skydive, I know it will be well worth it because all funds raised for our charities really do make a difference for Barnsley and Rotherham patients and staff.
“Over the last two years, our charities have helped fund a huge range of much-needed support for staff and patients, including thank you packs, sweets and treats, complementary therapies, and even a new wellbeing garden.
“I’d like to say thank you to the communities who continue to donate and raise funds so generously even through difficult times.”
