TWO fundraising barmen threw all caution to the wind as they skydived from 14,000ft for charity.

Adam Richardson, 20, and Gary Schoeman, 23, who both work in Welwyn, also smashed their initial fundraising target by raising over £5,000 for the Isabel Hospice and Welwyn St Mary's Primary School.

Popular pint-puller Adam, from the White Horse, described the jump that he and Gary did over the Cambridgeshire countryside on May 21 as "exhilarating".

He said: "I can't explain the feeling but it was all just amazing and I felt so much relief when I landed.

"I loved going up in the plane as it looks completely different up there but I was slightly apprehensive.

"It's indescribable when you initially fall out of the plane."

Gary, who works at the White Horse and sister restaurant Stable Door, and Adam organised a fundraising bash at the pub that included a slave auction earlier this month ahead of the skydive.

Adam told the WHT that they both felt very proud of raising so much for two local causes.

"To have raised well over £5,000 when we only expected to get a fifth of that is phenomenal and we had great fun doing it," said Adam, who lives in Stevenage.

"The slave auction raised £4,000 which was excellent and people have been only too happy to help.
