THE sky’s the limit for 16-year-old teenager Harry Brown, who plunged 15,000 ft in a parachute.

Harry who lives with his proud grandparents Peter and Linda May in New Milton, took part in the parachute jump and raised £500 for children’s charity the NSPCC.

It was the second parachute jump for the Bournemouth and Poole college student, who vowed to jump the dizzying height after beating his target last year.

Peter said: “Due to Covid-19 restrictions no jump-suits were allowed so Harry jumped in his own clothes. He was not able to wear the cap which protects the ears, so he spent several days with his ears ringing - but he said it was worth it.

“Because of lockdown, Harry found it hard to raise money. As soon as lockdown was lifted he achieved his target with boot sales, donations and a charity stall raffle with his nan.”

Harry reached his target of £500 which will fund the helpline for 130 children to use for an hour.

Peter said: “These children need help more than ever during the pandemic and who have been forgotten.”

Harry lives us. As a year 11 student he has had all the anxiety of exams and the fiasco of grading and college placements. “As grandparents of Harry we are very proud of him. He is a an example of the youth of this nation, many of whom receive bad press.”

Next year Harry said he might like to try wing walking.

Harry said; “I made a promise to do the parachute jump. I made a promise and I will keep to my word.”
