Eight students from Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College are set to take part in a daring skydive to raise money towards their World Challenge in India.

The students - who are part of a 12 strong team that will travel to South India in July - include Jade Poulter, Amber Bourne, Florence Seigneury, Alice Rolph, Emma Wright, Leah Epton, Amber Robinson and Oliver Borman.

The skydive will take place at Hibaldstow on April 26.

Jade Poulter, 17, from South Somercotes, is a pupil at the Louth campus of Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College.

Jade said: “I’m really excited to do the skydive, but I’ll probably be a bit scared 
on the day.”

The World Challenge India team will be setting off to Kochi on July 17, where the dozen students will be taking on the Munner Trail, climbing mountains higher than Mount Snowdon in the process.

Jade explained: “We’re really excited for that and it will be a big challenge, especially as it’s during monsoon season.”

After the three day trek, the students will take part in community projects with local school children, exchanging lessons, songs and games from their cultures. The last couple of days will be a chance to relax and explore, with all activities being organised by the students themselves.

Other fundraising efforts have included bag packing at a local supermarket, and a gig that will be performed by Jade’s singer and guitarist father, Dave Poulter, at Louth Golf Club on Saturday April 18, starting at 7.30pm.
