Five paramedics who took to the air on Saturday (20 April) to jump 10,000 feet from a plane raised over £4000 for London's Air Ambulance.

Paramedics Andrew Mills, David Platts, Laura Andrews, Ayoola Ariyibi and Rachael Fox travelled to the Old Sarum Airfield in Salisbury to do the sky dive with seven of their friends.

Andrew, 27, said: "On behalf of everybody who jumped I would like to pass on our thanks to all the people who reached into their pockets and donated towards London's Air Ambulance, we raised a fantastic £4000.

"We're all so pleased to have raised such a great amount of money and also lived to tell the tale.

"The justgiving page will stay open for the next couple of weeks should anyone wish to donate following the successful completion of the jump. This kind of charity work really makes a difference and helps keep the air ambulance flying."
The team raised £4,063 for London's Air Ambulance, which delivers an advanced trauma team to critically injured people in the capital.
