DARING Ham&High reporter Susanna Wilkey raised nearly �800 for charity by completing a terrifying 12,000ft skydive and she was thrilled when the newspaper doubled the cash.
Parent company Archant's charity matched funding scheme meant the Winchester Project in Swiss Cottage received more than �1,500 for its work with disadvantaged youngsters in Camden. Ms Wilkey said: "It was really scary but I am thrilled I managed to raise so much - and it is even better now the amount has been doubled."
The skydive saw 20 jumpers raise �9,000 for the charity's �2.3million appeal to pay for a much-needed refurbishment. The charity has also just launched the winChangers agenda, a consultation to find out what people think about it, how it could be better and what they would like to see from it.
The survey seeks to renew the building, the brand, finances, governance and to embrace new ways of running the services. For more information or to donate to the charity visit www.thewinch.org.
