The sky’s the limit for Luke Holland from Worksop who has signed up for St John Ambulance’s latest fund-raising event – the Superhero Skydive.

And he hopes many more people will join them by signing up to support the first aid charity and help save more lives.

The first aid charity is challenging people to unleash their inner superhero with its latest fund-raising events – the Superhero Skydive and the September Superhero Stroll.

Luke, 19, will be doing the tandem parachute jump from 10,000 feet this November as part of St John Ambulance’s fund-raising event.

Meanwhile, back on the ground, the money he raises will help the nation’s leading first aid charity continue its mission of saving lives.

A member of St John Ambulance for one year, Luke provides logistics support and training at the Worksop unit.

He also provides support at fund-raising events including supermarket collections.

He has raised around £500 for the charity over the last couple of years with his partner Emma, who is the unit manager.

They recently passed on first aid skills to Worksop shoppers by staging free demonstrations and handing out first aid guides in the town centre.

“I’ve always wanted to do a skydive,” said Luke, who is a student union president and governor at North Notts College.

“So when I heard about the Superhero Skydive challenge through St John Ambulance I jumped at the chance to take part.”

“First aid is such a vital skill for everyone to have, and it’s so great to be involved with the cadets at Worksop and see what a difference it can make to them.”

“I would encourage as many people as possible to learn first aid – it can save lives.”

Luke is one of more than 50 skydivers fund-raising for St John Ambulance across the country throughout the year.
