A Letchworth man has completed a charity skydive in memory of his wife, who died in a car crash.

Jess Bains raised £1,000 for The Roads Victims Trust and the town’s Highfield School when he took on the scary challenge.

Jess did the skydive in memory of his wife Kal, who tragically died in a collision in 2002.

He said: “The Trust and Highfield school hold a special place in my heart. The school did a tremendous job in educating my two daughters Kiran and Raveen during their formative years, and the Road Victims Trust is a great charity that supports so many people at their time of need. I was delighted to give my support to them.”

Highfield headteacher Ian Morris said: “This is a very generous gesture by Jess and we will ensure it goes directly towards the education of others.”
