Peter Norman carried out a tandem parachute jump, raising more than £500 for St Giles Hospice, and says he would love to do a Wing Walk.

He said: “I really enjoyed skydiving for St Giles – it was a big adrenaline rush, far better than any rollercoaster ride you can go on and the views are just phenomenal. It’s just a massive buzz.

“I wouldn’t hesitate to go Wing Walking – I’d do it tomorrow. It’s so satisfying to challenge yourself with such a unique experience – especially when you’re doing it in aid of such a great cause.

“I did my jump in memory of my dad, who died at home with lung cancer in 2003 supported by St Giles palliative care nurses. It allowed him to be at home with his family right to the end, which made such a difference to him and we’re grateful that he got that opportunity.”
