A 74-year-old former Welwyn Garden City man and his daughter are preparing to plunge thousands of feet together to help victims of sexual abuse.
Retired electronic engineer Bruce Piggott and his Meisha, a former Stanborough School pupil, will both dare a skydive on April 2 for the Lucy Foundation, which helps child victims.
Bruce, who lived in Daniells for 29 years until 2013, said: “It will be a first for both of us, although I have done a bunjee jump.
“I am less nervous about this than for the bungee jump. I assume the instructor wants to stay alive as much as I do.”
He now lives in Hertford, but previously worked for two Welwyn Garden City electronics businesses- Stag Microsystems and Computer Keyboard Systems, and hopes for sponsorship from former colleagues.
Bruce and Meisha, who now lives in Hemel Hempstead, are tackling the skydive near Reading in Berkshire, and ask supporters do donate online at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/BrucePiggott1
