Sky dive to thank the Critical Care Team

Two men from West Lynn jumped out of a plane to raise more than £1,000 to thank Critical Care staff at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Christopher Ward and Clive Jackson completed the 10,000 feet skydive to give something back to the unit for their care of Sarah Davies.

Miss Davies, who is the partner of Mr Ward, spent 16 weeks at the QEH and Papworth Hospital in Cambridge after suffering a severe Asthma attack for which she received life-saving treatment.

Mr Ward said: “The nurses and doctors in Critical Care are a brilliant team and we really appreciate what they did for Sarah and the family. The support we received from family and friends helped us to get through this time.

Both Mr Ward and Mr Jackson have presented £1,415 to Staff Nurse Jane Moore, who was one of the many nurses who looked after Miss Davies, and Practice Development Nurse Julie Allen.

Mr Jackson, who is Miss Davies’s brother-in-law, said: “The skydive was an amazing feeling and you could see for miles.”
