Algarve couple jumps for heroes

Algarve residents Leanne and Matthew Turner will be returning to the UK to take part in a tandem skydive with the Red Devils on September 3 to raise much needed funds for the Help for Heroes charity.

Leanne Turner told the Algarve Resident: “This is such a good cause that my husband and I wanted to do something to help all the amazing men and women who have been wounded in war.”

The couple from Loulé have already raised more than 500 pounds sterling but are looking for help to pay for flights back to Nottingham where they will complete the skydive as part of an official charity day at Langar airbase.

The Help for Heroes charity was founded in 2007 and money raised through the charity is used to support servicemen and women wounded during service for the UK since 9/11.
