An office manager has raised hundreds of pounds for charity after skydiving from 15,000 ft.
Colin Jones, who works at Palletforce founder member C&D South West in Chard, completed the charity challenge on Saturday, May 18.
So far he has raised £620 for Christian Aid, although he is still collecting sponsorship money, by doing the skydive which included a free-fall of 9,000 ft in 55 seconds.
"It was absolutely fantastic, easily one of the best things I have ever done," said Colin, from Wiveliscombe.
"We were flying through clouds at 150mph and somersaulting at 15,000 ft up, it was just great. I had a brilliant time and I am thrilled with how much support I was shown and how much money I have raised so far."
Colin, 42, chose to support Christian Aid because his wife Bex has visited Zambia, as a teacher at Kingsmead Community High School which has links with a school there, and seen first-hand the hardship faced by Zambians.
Colin and his wife have also hosted a teacher from the Zambian school during a two-week visit.
"We are all so proud of Colin for raising so much money and doing something that many others wouldn’t, and we were more than happy to support him in his fundraising efforts," said Dave Holland, Sales and Marketing Director at Palletforce.
