The East Anglian Air Ambulance is to benefit from a new sponsorship scheme that will allow novice skydivers to jump from 13,000 feet in tandem with stunt man Steve Truglia.

Participants in the Jump with Steve campaign must raise a minimum of £295 to take part. The jump costs £195, and the remaining £100 goes to the charity. Participants who raise more than £500 will win a course at the Xscape Leisure and Entertainment Centre in Milton Keynes, and the top fundraiser will win a fast-track freefall course. Funds raised will go towards three air ambulances for Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.
