Nurses raise £3,000 in sky dive to help child burn victims

Two nurses who look after ill children have raised almost £3,000.
Saskia Brockington and Sara Hall, who live in Clevedon, completed a 10,000ft skydive and managed to raise £2,934 for Bristol Children's Hospital.
They work in the 10-bedded burns and neurosurgical high dependency unit, known as Daisy ward.
The ward consists of six paediatric high dependency cubicles used for major burns patients, neuro-surgical patients and general surgical patients who need specialist high dependency care, and four burns cubicles which are used to care for and treat children who experience minor and major burns.
The money collected will be used to facilitate all 10 cubicles with new televisions to give youngsters entertainment, as five of the cubicles have no windows and patients are often bed bound due to surgeries, pain and equipment being used to help treat them.
