Scottish civil servant jumps for charity

Senior Scottish poultry civil servant Charles Russell is to complete a bungee jump off the Garry Bridge, just outside Pitlochry in central Scotland, to raise money for handicap charity Capability Scotland.

Charles was involved in a serious motorcycle accident last year, when he hit a traffic island at 60mph, and ended up in hospital with several broken bones, lost teeth and fingers requiring plastic surgery.

Following the experience, he has decided to do the bungee jump to help raise funds for those who have been less fortunate than himself and suffer from permanent disability.

It is understood that JSR Services has offered £55 for the opportunity to push Charles off the bridge at midday on 31 March, while his son plays the bagpipes. He is also considering wearing a kilt for the occasion….
