Nikos Kokkoris planned to take on a sponsored skydive earlier this year in aid of Carrondale Care Home, where he works, to help generate the £17,000 needed to pay for the vehicle.
The event had to be postponed due to the Scottish Government’s coronavirus restrictions, however, the cook is now planning to leap from a plane thousands of feet above St Andrews on January 23, 2021.
Staff at the Carron service say the minibus would give them “freedom to assist residents in fulfilling their wishes by visiting places they would otherwise be unable to visit”.
Carrondale Care Home is a 70-bed, purpose-built facility that cares for the elderly, those with dementia and younger adults with various life-limiting conditions.
