A brother and sister jumped out of a plane at 12,000 ft to raise more than £930 for Cancer Research UK.
Michael Croucher, 23, and his younger sister Danielle, 18, both of March, took part in a tandem skydive at Block Fen in Wimblington.
They were inspired to do the jump because of the bravery of their aunt, who has just been diagnosed with cancer for the third time.
Michael said: “Our aunt has been battling cancer for four years and has been told they can’t do anything about it.
“She is the strongest person we know and is our main inspiration as, despite the personal battle she is experiencing, she still places everyone else’s needs before her own. She is a true inspiration.

“The amount of bravery required from us to skydive was only a fraction required from those who suffer the disease.”
Michael said skydiving was an experience neither he nor his sister would forget, especially since it was the first time she had been in a plane.

He said: “It was amazing. It was a bit scary but once you are up there you have no choice. When I landed I wanted to do it again.
“It was the first time Danielle had been in a plane. She was really scared but she did so well.”
