Trevor - who has raised more than £20,000 for charity, including for Comic Relief and the MS Trust in nearly 25 years - says a chance conversation between him and Amy revealed their shared passion for adrenaline-fuelled events.

A keen runner and cyclist before his multiple sclerosis began to progress, Trevor – who has worked at PHU for almost five years – also decided a new activity would be better suited to his diagnosis.

Trevor explained: “Taking on fundraising events like this is just part of being me, as I’m always up for a challenge.

"I’ve always wanted to do a skydive and as I near my five-year anniversary at the hospital, it seems like the time to put increased support behind the charity.

“At work I often see the charity’s efforts and how it really focuses on the human side of what we do.

"For anyone fundraising or donating to the hospital, they are rewarded by knowing they bring extra colour and dignity to those connected to PHU.

“As for the skydive itself, I expect to get nervous nearer the day, though there’s no backing out now.”

Kate Sandys, Head of Portsmouth Hospitals Charity, said: “We are so grateful to people like Trevor and Amy who quite literally take their fundraising to new heights to help our charity.

“Their skydive is an amazing commitment with all funds raised going towards enhancing patient care and staff wellbeing, including helping to improve facilities, purchase equipment, and support research and innovation across our hospital.”
