TWO Huddersfield people plan to leap 10,000ft from a plane to help boost a company's big fundraising campaign.

Mark Roberts, 41, and Sarah Sunderland, 30 - colleagues at Property Search Group on Trinity Street - are to take part in a sponsored 10,000ft parachute jump next Sunday.

They want to raise funds for victims of the tsunami disaster and were inspired to take to the skies after their London-based co-director, John May, lost his 20-year-old daughter, Lisa, in the tragedy.

The company workers have also sponsored close friend Linda Cruse, a self-funded international aid worker for Youth Business International, to go out to Thailand to help with the relief effort.

PSG's managing director Tweedie Brown said: "We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our workforce and we have raised more than £10,000 to help Linda with her work."

Mark and Sarah will go sky high to bolster those funds when they jump from The Black Knights Parachute Centre in Lancashire.

Mark, the firm's IT director, said: "It was Sarah's idea to do a sponsored parachute jump and she managed to rope me into it!

"We want to raise money for the victims as we know they will need aid in the long term."

Sarah works as a research consultant for the firm, which has Huddersfield offices in Trinity Street.

CARING children at Shelley First School have raised £170 for the Asian tsunami appeal.

Activities which netted the cash included bun selling and lucky dips.

The local toddler group chipped in with its takings.
