‘Superman’ James Woodhouse leapt out of a plane on 4 May raising almost £700 for the North London Hospice. The superhero clad 22-year-old was joined by seven others as they skydived from 13,000 feet at Brackley airfield in Northants. The group’s spectacular dive, which saw them reach speeds of 120mph in freefall, has so far raised over £8500 for the Hospice. Commenting on his skydive, James said, “The Hospice did such a good job looking after my nana a couple of years ago so when my grandpa suggested I skydive on their behalf, I couldn’t really say no! It was pretty nerve-wracking at first but the thrill of the jump was incredible and I’m delighted to have raised this money for the Hospice. I intend it to be the first of a number of fundraising efforts on their behalf.” Robin Langrishe, Director of Fundraising at the North London Hospice, commented:  “We are always enormously grateful to those who fundraise for the Hospice but we have particular respect for the ones who decide to jump out of a plane in support of our work! We would like to thank the entire group for their participation and particularly for the fantastic funds raised which will enable us to continue to provide expert palliative care to our patients.”
