Daredevil Greys Education Students Complete Big Jump to Raise Funds for Duke of Edinburgh Award Expedition

Greys Education Centre pupils Skydive to raise funds for Duke of Edinburgh Award Expedition with support of Leighton Buzzard-based solicitors, Osborne Morris & Morgan
Getting ready

Several pupils from Greys Education Centre recently took part in a sponsored tandem skydive to raise much-needed funds to buy kit for their Duke of Edinburgh Award Expedition.

The three pupils from the Alternative Provision Academy were Liam Pounder, Jack Jarvis and Subs Akin. Together they joined with one Specialist Teaching Assistant, Mia Tomlinson, and complete with jumpsuits and instructors all took the brave leap from the plane.

“It was a really exhilarating, incredible experience” said student Liam Pounder. “I would like to thank all the people and companies that supported us to do
this jump. It means a lot to us.”

The skydive took place on 22nd June once the exam period had finished, and was organised by Greys Education Centre teacher James Rosling.

The pupils needed to raise £1,850 for the tandem skydive. The funds were raised from an organised car wash event and generous donations totalling £700 from Leighton Buzzard-based solicitors Osborne Morris and Morgan Solicitors and Brasier Freeth Chartered Surveyors. The Maria Marina Foundation, a philanthropic foundation which supports disadvantaged people and people with special needs, also contributed £750 towards their target.

When Tim Woolford, the Managing Partner of local solicitors Osborne Morris & Morgan, initially heard about the fundraising skydive at the school where his brother Jon Woolford teaches, he was in no doubt that they would help to support them.

On sponsoring one of the students, Tim said of the achievement “Congratulations to everyone who took part in the skydive and we hope you all enjoyed completing your Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award”.

The sponsorship raised now means the pupils can purchase vital kit for their expedition. The award helps pupils to develop positive relationships, observe the benefits of contributing to their local environment, learn new skills, take part in physical recreation and learn map reading and survival skills on a 2-day expedition.
