Staff from the Bletchley Wilkinson store have taken part in a charity base jump to raise cash for Willen Hospice.

Customer service assistants Sarah Callow and Tracey McGill were joined by regional stock manager, Daren Darby, and the stores security guard, David White, to make the 125ft plummet at Bodyflight, Bedford.

The ‘Vertigo’ drop is intended to simulate a BASE jump, where daredevils traditionally propel themselves from great height with a parachute breaking their fall.

In all they raised £308 for the hospice.

Sarah said: “I can’t believe we all jumped from 125ft. We were all terrified to make the first step, but we knew that it would raise a lot of money for a really worthy charity and we’re glad we did it.”

Chief executive at Willen Hospice, Paul Hinson, added: “The Bletchley Wilkinson store has been a great support to us over the past months. I’d like to thank Sarah and Tracy for once again getting behind us.”
