Murphy added: “A massive thank you to everybody who donated to PIPS Hope and Support.
“It was an amazing experience and a privilege to participate whilst raising awareness of the services this amazing charity offers. We were also very lucky with the weather on the day – making for fantastic views from the plane!”
