Animal lover Sandra Howarth will make a leap of faith when she jumps out of a plane to raise money for a dog rescue charity.
The BBC HR business partner will be putting on a parachute next month to bring in funds for Ravenswood Pet Rescue.
Sandra, of March, said: “Last year I did a charity fire walk for Sue Ryder Hospice in Peterborugh and was so hyped afterwards that I promised to do a parachute jump this year.
“The idea got put on the back burner until my nine year old niece Zoe Berry kindly reminded me about it. I knew I couldn’t get out of it so booked it up for May.
“I chose Ravenswood after a couple of friends re-homed dogs from them. They do such a good job and I wanted to feel money was going to a local cause where every penny goes to the animals.

“When I heard they had a vets bill for £3,000 I hoped my jump might help make in-roads into the bill.”
Sandra has booked and paid for the jump at the North London Parachute Centre at Wimblington out of her own money and all funds raised will go to Ravenswood.
