Portsmouth man to jump for charity in memory of a beloved gran

Have your say

OUTSTANDING care given to a man’s grandmother has prompted him to jump out of a plane for charity.

David Malzard, 43, of Southsea, is planning to skydive from 10,000ft to 
raise money for The Rowans Hospice in Purbrook, which cared for his grandma Gladys Claydon before she died in June aged 94.

Mr Malzard hopes to raise more than £500 for the hospice before the jump on September 5.

He said: ‘She went into The Rowans and they did so much for her, and I’ve wanted to do a skydive since I was a child.’

Mr Malzard said people can donate to his appeal at his shop, Pompey Hardware in Southsea.
