The 31 members of staff, including Jacqui Egan and Greg Hilton from Churchill Retirement Living on Hatfield Road, jumped from 15,000 feet - freefalling for around 60 seconds.

They raised more than £22,000 for local charities, including Willen Hospice in Milton Keynes. The event was organised by the company’s registered charity, the Churchill Foundation, which helps Churchill Retirement Living staff to support local causes.

Regional managing director Greg Hilton said: ““I’ve never shirked a challenge, and I’m a strong believer in giving something back to the community, so when Churchill colleagues suggested a charity skydive of course I jumped at the opportunity! Willen Hospice is a fantastic charity that does some excellent work in the local area.”
