A Burnham-On-Sea Coastguard member has received hundreds of pounds worth of pledges for a charity close to his heart as he plans to do a sponsored 15,000ft sky dive.

Andy Hutton Young will be taking to the skies later this month with the aim of raising funds for The UK Sepsis Trust.

Talking to, Andy said: “On February 24th, weather allowing, I will be doing a sponsored sky dive in aid of The UK Sepsis Trust because during last year two amazing people that I knew were taken by Sepsis.”

“One was like a second mother to me during my teenage years and an incredible lady. The other was a work colleague from my days in the military who made everyone smile as much as he did. It is in their memory that I am doing the jump.”

He added that jump will be from 15000ft which “is the highest a civilian can jump from – I’m apprehensive but it is all for a good cause and in memory of brilliant people.”

“I have set a target of £1000 and am getting great support, but I would love to not only meet the target but surpass it.”
