THE drinks were on Sadler's Ales employee Sam Pegg after he took part in a charity skydive in Swansea.

Sam was enticed into the 12,000ft leap of faith, because his wife Hannah was already taking part.

He admitted: "I agreed to do the jump about 12 months ago and then thought nothing of it.

"But it suddenly came round and there was no getting out of it, because it would have been such a huge loss of face."

Sam, a brewer at the Lye based brewery, was backed by Sadler's Ales which paid for him to take part.

He said: "If it wasn't for Sadler's Ales, I wouldn't have been able to afford to do the jump. I was really apprehensive about doing it, but afterwards I wouldn't have minded doing it again, because I was on such a high.

"I was terrified something might go wrong and I'd have to give the money back."

Sam, aged 34, from Wollescote, was raising money for cancer charity Tenovus and has already reached a total of £1,600.

He met his wife while working at Sadler's when she was restaurant manager - but she now works in Birmingham.

Contributions can still be made on the Tenovus website charity jumps section.
