AN adrenaline-seeking porter at Barnsley Hospital will take to the skies later this year.

Luke Callaghan, 28, took part in the charity’s firewalk back in November 2023, raising £485 and beginning his life as a daredevil.

He has now signed for the hospital’s skydive in April, where he will raise money for the ‘Make a Memory’ appeal, which is improving services in the hospital’s elderly ward.

Jane Mills, charity development manager, said: “We are getting really close to our appeal target with only £22,000 to go to get the £300,000 which will see us transform our care of the elderly ward to support older patients and those living with dementia.

“We are excited that Luke is taking part in the skydive and thank him for continuing to raise funds and help us achieve our target.”
