A FEARLESS fundraiser who raised hundreds of pounds for victims of crime in South Yorkshire with a 12,000ft skydive has received another boost to his charity efforts.

Sean Kelley, aged 24, collected a cheque for £260 from Rotherham solicitors Oxley and Coward after the successful leap last year in aid of Victim Support.

Sean’s appeal has already raised more than £315 for the organisation, which gives practical and emotional support to victims and witnesses of crime, many of whom are children.

He decided to take part in the jump after spending two years as one of Victim Support’s 6,000 specially-trained volunteers.

Sean said the law firm’s support was ‘much appreciated’.

“They sponsored the cost of the skydive, so every penny I raise goes straight to the charity,” he added.
