A TEAM of daredevil charity workers are taking to the skies next week - to raise money for a more sedate form of transport.
Neil Perriment, Shirley Johnson and Nick Blencowe, who work for Ely and Soham Dial-a-Ride, are hoping to raise money for a new minibus to add to their fleet of six by launching themselves out of a plane on July 22.
The charity, offers those who are elderly, incapacitated or simply live off the beaten track the chance to book a ride for doctor's appointments, shopping trips, or even visits to far-flung friends across the other end of the district.
East Cambridgeshire District council pays an annual sum to the charity but it relies on fundraising and donations to keep it going.
If you would like to sponsor the team, call Nick on 01353 661161.
