AMELIA Trust Farm in Barry looked to the skies for funds when a group of 11 staff, volunteers and supporters took part in a skydive at Swansea Airport.
The group raised £2,400 by taking the plunge from 13,000ft in a 160mph free-fall followed by a parachuted descent from 6,000ft.
Deacon Lorraine Brown, director of Amelia Trust Farm said: “I can't express how frightened I was. It was a real challenge to overcome the fear but knowing it supports the valuable work with young people made it so worth while.”
The Amelia Trust Farm is a Care Farm, registered charity and a working farm set in 160 acres of countryside that supports and educates vulnerable and disadvantaged young people.
