Students and staff from Benjamin Britten High School in Lowestoft ready for charity skydive
PUBLISHED: 17:00 05 June 2015
A team of 30 pupils and staff from Benjamin Britten High School are gearing up for a charity skydive.
Having already raised £2,000, event organiser and teacher Kim Armon hopes people will come and support the group’s efforts.
She said: “The students are really excited and it is great for me to see as I have organised it and it is such a big thing to do.
“The kids have been really amazing and their enthusiasm has been awesome. One girl has raised £400 for charity on her own.”
The dive will take place at Ellough Airfield tomorrow (June 6) after a safety briefing at 8.30am. The school’s four houses all chose individual charities to support at the start of the year. Neptune chose the Beach Radio’s Help an East Coast Child, Mercury chose East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, Saturn picked Top Cats and Jupiter chose Team Addie – a charity set up to help one of the daughters of former English teacher Katie Hall, as she has hemi-convulsion-hemiplegic-epilepsy (HHE) syndrome.
