Video: Mayor of Lincoln skydives for charity

High life: The Mayor of Lincoln jumped out of a plane at over 13,000 feet to raise money for charity.

The Mayor of Lincoln successfully jumped out of a plane from 13,500 feet, raising more than £2,300 for charity.

Mayor of Lincoln Councillor Pat Vaughan (71), alongside City of Lincoln Council’s Civic Manager, Kate Fenn, leapt out of the plane at Langar Airfield in Nottinghamshire on April 9.

The pair decided to take part in the jump for the Mayor’s charity, the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

The Mayor said: “I’m so grateful to everyone for their support helping to raise nearly £2,500 for this extremely worthy cause to help raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease.

“It was an absolutely brilliant experience and I’m still on a high,” he said.
