A Welwyn Garden City woman jumped out of plane to thank a hospital that looked after her little sister and family.

Danielle Reardon, 22, has raised nearly £700 for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) after doing a skydive on Sunday, October 22.

The former Stanborough School pupil’s sister Kiera Hughes, 18, was just two weeks old when she was rushed to GOSH with RSV Bronchiolitis and was placed in a medical coma.

At the time Danielle was three and her brother was six so GOSH organised a room and daycare in the hospital so they could stay with Kiera and their mum, without having to stress about travel or money.

Danielle said: “She made a great recovery and I am so happy that I have been able to give back to GOSH after everything they did for us.

“The skydive was the most experience of my life so far.”
