The team took to the skies at Headcorn Aerodrome and jumped out of a plane at 12,000 feet, including a freefall of 30-40 seconds. So far they have collectively raised £4,200.

Nicola Godin, Nursery Nurse on the Special Care Baby Unit said: “Although we were all very apprehensive before the jump, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. It is something none of us had done before and now most of us would love to do it again. To do it together as a team was great, knowing we were raising money for a great charity that supports sick and premature babies.”
