Jodie takes a dive for critically-ill tots

A health and social care student raised more than £1,100 with a skydive to provide equipment for critically-ill newborn babies.

Farnborough College of Technology student Jodie Matthews, aged 17, took the plunge for Frimley Park Hospital’s Saving Tiny lives Appeal.

She said: “The money raised was for my local hospital so it was a cause I was particularly interested in.

“It’s always nice to give something back to the community and challenge yourself at the same time. It was an amazing experience.”

Health and social care programme manager Lesley Harden said: “Jodie really is an excellent example of a student who is doing something inspirational for other people.”
