NICOLA Buckle wanted to thank the hospital unit that helped her late father so she took to the air.
Nicola, 24, of Grove Road, Bury St Edmunds, did a charity skydive from 13,000 feet above Beccles and has raised £850 for West Suffolk Hospital’s dialysis unit. She did it in memory of her father Neil, who died from kidney and liver failure at the age of 49.
“We would not have had my dad with us for as long as we did if he had not received the tender loving care he got from the dialysis unit,” she said.
She also hopes publicising the unit will make others more aware of liver and kidney conditions. “If he had got help sooner rather than later, we might still have him,” she said.
