Charity skydive raises funds for Children in Need

A Norwich car dealership's operations director has plummeted from 13,000ft to raise funds for a children's charity.

Trevor Stedman, from Peugeot dealership Busseys, has raised more than �700 by taking to the sky and doing a charity skydive for BBC Children in Need.

It was Mr Stedman's first skydive, and he plunged from a plane at Beccles Airfield on Sunday, August 19.

About the skydive, he said: 'I have to admit there were a couple of occasions throughout the morning when I had jelly legs and second thoughts, but I am so glad I took the plunge.'

Mr Stedman said he had been overwhelmed by the wealth of support he has received from friends, family, work colleagues and customers who have sponsored him to do his high-flying challenge.
