Emma O’Brien, business support manager, and Charlotte Cooper, joint managing director, of Cooper Lomaz Recruitment, in Lower Baxter Street, Bury St Edmunds, took to the skies.

Charlotte said: “This is a great cause to raise money for.”

Emma added: “I think I must have been busy when Charlotte asked me to do this and agreed to it, not actually thinking. At least I can say this is one more thing off my bucket list and I’ve raised money for a great charity.”

They jumped from 10,000ft at the North London Parachute Centre and raised more than £1,000.

This comes after the East Anglian Daily Times launched the Lifesaver Appeal to support the air ambulance.
