THERE is one thing Terry Barker has always said he'll never do - jump out of an aeroplane.But the Herald reader and Axminster businessman has had a change of heart and will face his worst fear for our Tash's Trip campaign.Mr Barker, of Shoe Mate, in Silver Street, said: "I've always said I'll never jump out of an aeroplane and I'm scared stiff of heights, but I think this is a worthy cause."Because I'm a well-known person in town, I hope it won't take long to raise some money."Terry raised £180 in sponsorship in two days. To pledge your support, visit his shop and sponsor him.He explains: "I'm not looking forward to the jump, but it's something that has to be done!"People said they would double the money - if i did it without a parachute. Fortunately, I've got shoes to repair!
