A youngster from Polegate jumped from a plane 10,000ft in the air to raise money for the Sussex Air Ambulance.

Nathan Dunbar took the plunge just four days after his 16th birthday and has so far raised more than £1,000 for the lifesaving charity.

He funded the cost of the skydive himself, as he wanted to raise as much money for Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance as possible.

Nathan has thanked everyone who donated, and has smashed his target of £750 by 136 per cent.

Though anyone who wishes to donate still can at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/nathan-j-dunbar-kssaa or by texting ‘DUNB56 £5’ to 70070 to donate £5.

Nathan will stop taking donations on Monday, October 1.

The Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust provides a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS), responding to patients who have suffered trauma or serious medical emergencies.

It operates 24 hours a day, ensuring it can be there for the most critically ill and injured people in the region.
