Parkour video raises cash for charity

First published in News

PUDSEY tried parkour when two Colchester students came up with a novel fundraising plan.

James Thompson, from Myland, and Jayde Hubbard, from Highwoods, made a YouTube video featuring themselves doing the extreme sport with Pudsey Bear watching and even trying some jumps.

The couple, both aged 18, made £36 for Children in Need when pals sponsored them for what is thought to be the first of its kind for the charity.

whats that got to do with it? The gazette has raised awareness and that supports the charity. The charity doesnt pay the gazettes bills?

How much did you donate?!

I'd never heard of parkour, but after seeing the clip and consulting Wikipedia, I realise I've seen clips of it for years. The original name is "parcours" because it was developed for the French army. Vive le sport!
