Skydive for OAP charity in town

Have your say

A FUNDRAISER jumped out of a plane for charity - raising £1,300 for Age UK’s Befriending Service in Rotherham.

Di Hollingsworth completed a skydive from a height of 12,000 feet.

Mrs Hollingsworth, head of care and support services at Age UK Rotherham, said: “There are thousands of older people in Rotherham who feel so very lonely every day.

“Age UK Rotherham’s wonderful Befriending Service and its stalwart volunteers are a lifeline to many of these people.

“We are in need of funds to keep this vital service going after January next year and this was my way of helping.”
