Headteacher does 15,000ft skydive to fund school repairs


Footage courtesy of North London Skydiving Centre A headteacher resorted to a skydive from 15,000ft to help raise funds for improvements to her school as there is not enough cash in the budget. Bridget Harrison, 39, said she briefly passed out during Saturday’s jump and had been nervous beforehand, but was determined to raise funds to fix problems at Rackham C of E Primary School in Witchford, Cambridgeshire. She has raised more than £2,300 so far, exceeding her initial target of £800, and described the experience as “awesome”. She said that a lot needs to be done at her school, including fixing a window in the main hall, decorating classrooms and replacing unreliable screens.
