Five members of staff at Legal and General will face their fears by taking part in a parachute jump to raise money for charity.

Adam Balmer, Purdy Lee, April Heasman, Jamie-Louise Gallagher and Andre Auckland, of the savings, investments and insurance company’s Hove branch, will be taking the leap of faith on April 28.

All five are taking the plunge for The Argus Appeal, which aims to give assistance to those in need throughout the community by providing funds for a variety of benefits and causes, in particular disadvantaged children, the elderly, the vulnerable and people with disabilities.

The Argus Appeal’s aim is to raise a minimum of £200,000 each year – every penny of which is wisely spent.
