TWO daredevils have been leaping out of an aeroplane for a charity skydive to raise money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

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.
