Local barber will take to the skies

Barber Steve Rushbridge is hoping to overcome his

fear of heights and complete a parachute jump for charity from a plane which

will be flying at 2500 feet above Devon.

Steve, of Badcocks Barbers in Frome has agreed to

undertake this challenge to raise funds for local charity the Julian Wort

Memorial Fund, which supports Cardiac Risk in the Young, a national charity

which raises awareness of hidden heart problems in young people.

To help him in his challenge, Steve is looking

for a major sponsor to enable him to book the jump. He can then go on to

raise as much money as possible through sponsorship.

Anyone wishing to sponsor Steve can contact him

at Badcocks Barbers shop in From
