Fenland woman to brave 13,000ft charity sky dive for WaterAid
A BRAVE March woman is preparing to freefall 13,000ft when she jumps out of a plane for charity next month.
Roxanne Scott will tackle the nerve-jangling sky dive to raise money for WaterAid - a charity which provides clean water, safe sanitation and hygiene education to the world’s poorest people.
The 23-year-old, who works for Anglian Water, said: “It’s one of those things where after you’ve done it, it becomes one of the best things you’ve ever done but before it fills you with complete dread.
“I’ve only just realised what I’ve actually let myself in for. I don’t really like flying so maybe jumping out of a plane wasn’t my best idea!
“I think I will probably get the biggest buzz from getting back on firm ground.”

She said: “WaterAid is one of the charities supported by Anglian Water. They bring clean, safe water to areas of the world that don’t have it.
