BRAVE teddy bears parachuting out of the sky raised more than £2,000 for the Pidley Mountain Rescue charity on Saturday (September 5).

The charity, which raises money to present specialist equipment to disabled people of all ages, has arranged the high-flying event for teddies for the past seven years at The Rookery Waters Fishing Lakes in Pidley.

Again this year, there were 10 teddies each sponsored by an individual or business, as well as a bucket collection.

Brownies were on hand with stretchers to pick up the fallen bears.

Each teddy was aiming to hit a target on the ground - the winner, which came within 129ft of the spot, was bear number 10, sponsored by the Mad Cat Pub in Pidley.

The sponsors won a meal for two at the Barn Restaurant in Pidley.
