A daring kennel hand from Lakenheath has raised £1,700 for an animal charity after taking part in 13,000ft skydive.
Sid Huett, who works for champion greyhound trainer Mark Wallis, collected the four-figure sum at the end of last month when joining other members of greyhound racing industry for the Fall For Hounds parachute jump, at Sibson Airfield, near Peterborough.
The event, which was organised by Racing Post TV presenter Julie Collier, was set up to raise money for the Retired Greyhound Trust.
“It was the best experience that I have ever had. The adrenalin and buzz of free falling through the clouds was out of this world,” said Sid.
“I had a target of reaching £1,000 on my mind and anything I collected after that was a bonus.
“It was really pleasing to see people put their hands in their pockets to sponsor me.”
“Full credit has to go to Julie Collier for getting this thing off the ground though, as it took a real big effort to organise this and get everyone together.”
