A Thirsk company director jumped 15,000 feet with his two daughters to raise money for charity.

Kevin Hudson of Life Windows in Thirsk was joined by daughters Alex, 21 and Georgina, 18 in a sky dive to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The trio performed the tandem sky dive from Hibaldstow airfield, North Lincolnshire and raised over £700.

It was a real challenge for Alex who is scared of heights.

“I was really scared but my family were really supportive and encouraged me. When I thought of all the money we were raising for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance I was able to jump and it was a fantastic experience. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is a thrill seeker.”

Kevin said they chose the Yorkshire Air Ambulance as it was a valuable service.

“we travel all over Yorkshire and due to the amount of travel unfortunately have seen a few bad car crashes that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance has needed to attend. It is such a worthwhile charity that saves lives and you never know when you or a family member might need them.”
