Wife Karen, 35, of Latimer Close, Hemel Hempstead, met Phillip in the town’s Astley Cooper School and they had two children – Holly, nine, and Evie, four.

The family still gets counselling from the team at Northchurch hospice, and the mass plunge raised funds to support its work.

Karen, pictured during her tandem dive with her instructor, said: “I can never thank the hospice enough.”

She skydived with Mo Coregan, Victoria Whitley, Simon Butcher, Paul Dennison, Daryl Latham and Gordon Cameron. You can still donate to the group at www.justgiving.com/teams/teamphillip.
