    Teacher completes 12,000ft charity skydive

    A teacher at West Hatch High School, Chigwell, has taken part in a charity tandem sky-dive to raise money for PAARS, a charity which supports families where the parent/carer is being abused by their adolescent child.

    Justine Williams offered to stand in for a fellow fundraiser who had to pull out at the last minute.

    Justine, the Head of Social Sciences and teaches Psychology and Sociology at the High Road school, said: "It was absolutely amazing - a complete adrenalin rush and so much fun. I would love to do it again tomorrow!"

    Justine jumped out of a plane at 12,000ft at an airfield in Oxfordshire on Sunday (May 15).

    PAARS was formed in February 2012 and currently works in the Enfield area.

    She said: "PAARS is such an amazing charity and completely unique in the UK so I want to raise as much money as possible to help them continue their work.

    "PAARS are using money raised to help continue supporting families. Most of the people at the charity are volunteers and they give up their own time to work with families where there is adolescent on parent abuse, helping and supporting the families to move forward together."

    The freefall, tandem jump saw Justine - and her jump partner from the London Parachute School - freefall for about 40 seconds and parachute for about five minutes.
