STUDENTS from Sudbury Upper School brought the academic year to an end with a 10,000 feet leap of faith for charity.

Sixth formers Emily Rowling, Harry Gibbs, George Fanning, Curtis Durell, Leanne Dua, Rebecca Brown and Kate Baker, along with music teacher Emma MacDougall, completed a tandem skydive for St Nicholas Hospice Care on Tuesday.

The daring group were inspired to take the plunge after hospice community fundraiser Ian Norris – who is also a governor at the Tudor Road school – spoke to pupils about the work of the charity.

James Tuck, head of music, who organised the jump, said he was delighted the students had put their fears aside to raise funds for the hospice, which cares for people with terminal and life-shortening illnesses.

Mr Norris said: “I think all those who jumped were incredibly brave.

“The support the hospice already receives from Sudbury Upper School is brilliant, and this is an extra leap in their help for us.”
