Cosham landlady jumps for a cause

Praise for outstanding school

Have your say

A LANDLADY is pulling together her bar staff to take part in a daring parachute jump in aid of The Rowans Hospice.

Sarah Jeram, who holds the reins at The Portsbridge, in Cosham, will leap 10,000ft from a plane with her four barmen and women above Netheravon airfield, home of the Army Parachute Association, in Wiltshire, on October 2.

They were originally set to take the plunge 10 days ago, but high winds ruled out the team’s dream of taking to the sky for the hospice.

The pub aims to raise £2,500 for the cause, and so far fundraisers have pulled in just under £1,000 towards their target.

Last month the pub held a charity night which treated locals to an evening barbecue and a rousing performance from swing band The Conway Brothers.

The night raised £600 – and now Sarah is calling on News readers to dig deep and donate.

She said: ‘We’re really eager to do it. I’m feeling quite nervous but I’m so excited. It will probably be emotional for us all on the day.’
