A cheque for £1,300 has been presented to the British Lung Foundation following a charity sky dive earlier this year.

Town councillor Steve Gazzard was joined in the 15,000ft plummet by Zoe Brockbank in memory of his daughter, Sarah Wright, who died from a lung condition.

Sarah was waiting for a double lung transplant when she died in 2012 and Steve has been fundraising for research into the disease ever since.

He said: “We would like to thank everyone for all their support and generosity.”

● Steve is holding a transplant awareness event, starting at 10am, in The Strand on Saturday, July 18.
