Whittons chips in to help skydive mums raise £800 for life saving equipment

Two brave mums will be leaping from a plane 15,000ft above Dunkeswell on Sunday (April 30) for a very worthy cause.

Natalie Taylor and Leila Stone are taking part in the sponsored skydive to help Ottery St Mary Primary School raise £800 to buy a defibrillator.

Last week, Honiton auctioneers Whittons chipped in with half the sum needed, ensuring the vital piece of life-saving equipment can now be purchased.

Boss Maria Whitton said: “We were delighted to be able to help such a worthy cause.”

Parent and Teachers’ Association chairman Sarah Pearman praised all the donors and fundraisers for their work and said their efforts were ‘fantastic’.
