Take the plunge for Beckton children’s hospice

ADRENALINE junkies are being sought to take the plunge in aid of a Newham children’s hospice.

Beckton-based Richard House is looking for brave jumpers to take part in a 10,000 ft tandem skydive.

It will take place on Saturday, May 7, in Brackley, near Milton Keynes.

Father-of-two Bryan Pritchard is one of those who took part last year, raising �1,000 for the charity’s vital work.

“I chose Richard House because I am a parent of two brilliant children,” he said.
