A trio of Old Buckenham neighbours whose lives have been affected by cancer braved a drop from thousands of feet up, bringing in more than £2,000 for two different charities.

HGV driver Steve Miller, of Fen Street, who is in remission from bowel cancer, and father-and-son pair Richard and Will Dunseith, of Fen Road, who lost a close family member to cancer, completed a skydive at Beccles Heliport on Saturday, July 11, in aid of The Big C and Cancer Research UK, respectively.

Mr Miller said the experience had, in part, helped him to conquer his fear of heights.

“It was nerve-wrecking, but we truly enjoyed ourselves,” he said.

“It certainly has put a bit more adventure in our lives. It gives you that incentive to do more. If the three of us put our heads together again, who knows what might happen?”

Having raised more than £2,300 between them, the three gave special mention to Banham Butchers, Mill House Garage of New Buckenham and Taylors Pet Store of Attleborough for their support.
