A daredevil mum took to the skies in September to raise an ‘amazing’ sum of money for play equipment at the primary school where she works.
Jo Arnold, aged 43, raised more than £1,200 for Banwell Primary School after completing a wing walk, being strapped to the wings of an airplane as it flew thousands of feet in the air.
The mum-of-two, who works at the school as a learning mentor, flew high above Cirencester to raise the cash, which will be spent on replacing adventure equipment in the school's field after it was removed in the summer.
Claire Pocock, headteacher, was impressed by Jo's efforts to support the school.
She said "I can't believe Mrs Arnold did this, but an amazing amount of money has been raised for our school.
