Some people may think its just plane crazy but a Derby man thought quite the opposite after completing a parachute jump, raising £250 for charity.

Simon Law, a mobile fitter for HiQ Derby on Abbey Street, completed the 3500 foot skydive over Nottingham airfield on Sunday in support of Breast Cancer Care.

Throughout October the HiQ fast fit network, which boasts150 centres nationwide, has targeted each one of its centres to raise £275 in its push to raise £100,000 for the charity.

And HiQ Derby's fundraising efforts took off - quite literally - when Simon decided to take to the skies for the cause.

Speaking of his achievement, Simon said: "I have always wanted to skydive and what better way than to raise money for charity in the process.

"It was really nerve-racking but an experience I will never forget. I can't wait to do it again!"

HiQ's marketing manager Geraldine McGovern said: "It is great to see that our HiQ staff are going to such lengths to raise money.

"Well done to Simon and the HiQ Derby team for showing their support and raising a credible amount of money to help people affected by Breast Cancer."
