SYFR Roth hospice 180Two South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue (SYFR) volunteers are set to take part in a charity skydive in aid of Rotherham Hospice.

Rob Hall and Chelsea Hall have been volunteering at SYFR for the past two years, working with the Fire Cadets at Rotherham station. They wanted to raise money for Rotherham Hospice after the charity supported Chelsea and her family through her grandmother’s illness.

Volunteer trainer Hall said: "I’ve always wanted to take part in a skydive and thought it would be a brilliant idea to do it for charity. Although I am nervous, I am really looking forward it as well. The Rotherham Hospice is a fantastic organisation which offers end of life care for patients and their families."

Joining them on the day (Sunday 27 September) and also taking part in the skydive is Rob Lee a Mechanic at SYFR. In total they are aiming to raise £2,000 for Rotherham Hospice which is committed to providing the highest standard of end of life care for patients and families affected by terminal illness over the age of 18.

Sue Butler, Volunteering Co-ordinator at South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue added: "This is going to be a real challenge for them. It’s all for a really good cause though and I am so proud of them all."
