Alastair Angus and John Simpson, known as Simmo, will be doing a bungee jump in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care

A butcher is swapping bangers for bungee cord to raise money for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

John Simpson is facing one of his toughest challenges when he leaps into the air from 160ft.

John, 58, will be donning his butcher’s apron and taking on the jump after accepting the challenge from colleagues at Elmswell Butchers.

His fear of heights will be something of a challenge but he is determined to go ahead.

Joining him will be shop manager Alastair Angus and Cameron Thompson.

The newly named ‘flying butcher’ has almost reached his target of £1,000 thanks to generous donations from customers at the Station Road shop.

He said: “The men at work kept crazing me to do it. I didn’t fancy it but I finally said I would for the hospice.”

John’s jump is on October 12 at Grafham Water Centre, Cambridgeshire.

To sponsor him go to justgiving.com/theflying butcher or at the shop.
