The teenager has so far raised £970, but this could double thanks to the Morrisons Foundation where staff match the amount you fundraise.

Oliver said: “The experience was one of the best things I’ve done so far - hanging out the edge of the plane is a feeling you can’t replicate. I really want to say a huge thank you to anyone that donated. It’s gone to an amazing cause.”
