Royston man takes plunge for charity

A Royston mechanic has conquered the skies after taking a sky dive for charity.

Danny Standing, 20, raised �400 for the NSPCC. It was the first time he has taken part in a sky dive.

Mr Standing said: “It wasn’t until I was dangling out of the plane that I started to worry, but by then it was a bit late.

“The dive was the most fantastic experience I have ever had, and I feel that I have done something really worthwhile,” said the Sillence Court resident, who used to attend the Greneway and Meridian Schools.

Danny’s mother Kate Fraser said: “He didn’t tell his great grandma until afterwards as it would worry her.

She said she will sponsor him next time though, because knowing him, there will be a next time.”
