A DETERMINED Highland Hospice supporter is gearing up for a birthday with a difference – in which he will throw himself out of a plane.

George Adamson, from Inverness, has been a helper at the hospice for the past eight years, as a driver and events volunteer.

His wife Dorothy has also supported the charity for 21 years and is often found helping out in their charity shops.

Mr Adamson has decided to mark his 70th birthday by taking the plunge in a 15,000 feet tandem skydive to aid the hospice.

He will travel to Errol Airfield in Perthshire to complete the charity mission on May 22.

He said: “I’m really excited to take on this challenge the day before my birthday and will certainly be celebrating with lots of birthday cake afterwards!

“I wanted to fundraise for Highland Hospice as the charity means a lot to myself and my wife Dorothy.

“Through my voluntary work I see first hand the difference that is made.”
