STAFF from a care home in Romsey hope to raise sky-high funds in a charity skydive.

Six staff members from Abbotswood Court Care Home will take on a daring 10,000 feet charity skydive on May 19.

They are raising money for the Care Workers Charity, which helps to support care workers’ professional and mental wellbeing and financial needs through offering grants, access to services and signposting to resources.
