Two people did a tandem skydive to raise money for a charity which transports blood by motorbike to Norfolk's hospitals for emergencies.
Colin Kilby and Connor Holloway raised £2,334 from the event for Serv Norfolk Blood Bikes.
The charity, which is supported by volunteers who use a dedicated fleet of motorbikes to provide an out of hours rapid response transport service for Norfolk hospitals, transports blood, plasma, platelets, samples, vaccines, factor VIII, donor breast milk and any other urgently required medical items to hospitals - at night, daytime weekends and bank holidays. This service is provided completely free of charge, allowing the NHS to divert funds where they are needed most.
Mr Kilby, general manager at Breckland Lodge in Attleborough, said: 'I absolutely loved the experience and would love to do another.
'The feeling was incredible and I am really proud we raised such a good amount for such a great cause.
