CLIC Sargent's Guinness World Record Skydive attempt last year has now raised over £300,000 in support of children and young people with cancer.

World Record Skydive fundraising hits the £300k mark

In total, 475 participants took the 10,000ft jump raising a minimum of £350 each with some generous jumpers raising even higher figures to help support CLIC Sargent's work.

Skydives were organised in Devon, Kent, Swindon, Salisbury and Hinton and although poor weather stopped a lot of jumpers, participants were keen to rebook their jumps to raise even more for the charity.

When we realised our five skydive teams had hit the £300,000 mark we were so proud!

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Farah Batchelor said: “The delay in people jumping meant we have seen event more money than anticipated trickling in over the last six months.

"A big thank you goes out to all CLIC Sargent staff, participants and their sponsors who worked together to raise in excess of £300,000 for the charity."
