Paula takes the plunge for SportsAid

Brave Branch Manager Paula from Duston finally made her parachute jump this weekend to raise money for British judo champion and SportsAid star, Jodie Caller.

Previous jumps have been cancelled due to weather and despite an incredibly icy day, Paula managed to take to the skies at 14,000 feet to complete her jump taking Duston's SportsAid fundraising to an impressive £530.

She was given a pep talk from Jodie herself who took time out from her busy schedule to come and watch the jump which saw Paula in free fall for around 60 seconds before engaging her chute.

Following a run of success at junior level, 18 year old Jodie finished 2014 by winning gold at the Junior British Championships and an impressive silver medal at the Senior British Championships. These results mean that Jodie is automatically on the Junior and Senior Great Britain Squads for 2015 and is well on target for the Rio Olympics! All monies raised will help Jodie travel to training and competitions.

Congratulations Paula and Jodie!
