Parachute jumpers fundraise for Greenfingers

A team of supporters took fundraising for Greenfingers to dizzying heights last weekend as they undertook a parachute jump for the charity to raise money for a garden at Bluebell Wood Children?s Hospice in Sheffield.

Nine jumpers took on the challenge on Saturday 26 September at the Army Parachute Association?s headquarters in Netheravon, Wiltshire.

The event has raised ?4,500 so far, a figure that is expected to rise. The money raised from the jump will go directly to Greenfingers? planned garden at Bluebell Wood Children?s Hospice in Sheffield, which will be built as part of the charity?s A Million Moments appeal.

Linda Petrons, head of fundraising for Greenfingers, said: ?We have all had a brilliant day here in Wiltshire. Thank you to all our brave jumpers, and their family and friends who came to support them. We are very proud of them all for undertaking the challenge with great enthusiasm and excitement and look forward to putting the funds raised to very good use at the Bluebell Wood Hospice bereavement suites.?

The success of this year?s jump has meant that Greenfingers plan to turn the challenge into an annual event ? next year?s parachute jump will take place on 24 September 2016.
