Have your say

THOUSANDS of pounds have been raised for a local charity after a group of staff jumped out of a plane.

Staff from Hall and Woodhouse pubs skydived from 10,000 feet.

They raised more than £14,000 for the Naomi House Children’s Hospice.

Anna Swierc of The Osborne View in Fareham was one of those who took part in the jump.

Fiona Hansford, corporate fundraiser for Naomi House, said: ‘We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who worked so hard to raise sponsorship money, and for actually being brave enough to jump out of the plane when the time came.

‘This will make a huge impact on our ability to provide support and care for children and young adults with life-limiting conditions.’

David Hoare, retail director at Hall and Woodhouse, said: ‘As a team we have been trying to think of as many imaginative ways to raise money for Naomi House as possible over the past 12 months and we really wanted to round off the year with one big push.’
