Nigel Chambers in Sky Dive Gear

A daredevil has completed a sponsored sky dive to raise money for the organisation that helped him beat his addictions.

Nigel Chambers, from Thornaby, has taken to the skies in the hope he can raise £500 for Hope North East.

The organisation is an abstinence based drug and alcohol recovery support service run by former addicts which encourages users to abstain from their addictions for good and aims to re-integrate them back into society once clean.

Nigel, 41, who now works as a receptionist for Hope North East, said:

“I just want to give a bit back to the people who helped me turn my life around.”

Nigel’s sky dive took place on Sunday, April 1 at the Shotton Colliery airfield in Peterlee.

He admitted: “I’m was absolutely terrified at the thought of jumping out of a plane at 13,000 feet - having a fear of heights didn’t help! However, it was a totally amazing experience and I would definitely do it again!.”

The money raised will go to support the Hope North East Service User Support Fund.
