PICTURES: Charity bungee jump at The Tamar pub, Crownhill
DAREDEVIL pubgoers dropped in for more than a pint at their local – by throwing themselves into a charity bungee jump.
Around 15 regulars at The Tamar, in Crownhill, hurled themselves off a 200ft crane set up in the pub car park yesterday evening.
The one-night-only challenge was part of an ongoing fundraising drive for the Honeypot Children's Charity.
Pub staff are holding a range of events for the organisation which provides respite breaks for child carers.

James Hawke was the first punter to leap at tackling the hair-raising stunt.
The 18-year-old said: "I thought I was going to die when I got to the top. But it was a real adrenaline rush and so after 45 minutes I did it again.
"It was a great experience and fantastic to raise money for charity but I don't think I'll do it ever again. Twice was enough."
Emma Richards, The Tamar's general manager, added: "We've got a pub full of people always up for a challenge. We wanted to raise some money for a worthy cause and give the punters a good laugh at the same time."
Participants paid £60 to jump, with more than £100 raised for charity.
