Sandra Howarth is jumping for joy after raising more than £650 for Ravenswood Pet Rescue by braving a sky dive challenge.
Animal lover Sandra chose Ravenswood after friends re-homed dogs from them and heard how much the group’s vets bills amounted to.
Despite nerves, on hearing that her sky dive buddy had been jumping out of planes for 25 years, she knew she was in safe hands.
“The scariest bit was going up in the plane, I knew it was real and couldn’t back out,” she said.
“Once I knew how experienced my co-jumper was though I felt totally safe and just enjoyed the experience.

“It was surreal going through clouds and looking down at March and seeing Ely Cathedral from above. My stomach turned when the parachute opened, but it was an amazing experience and one I would definitely do again.”
Sandra got the buzz for a charity sky dive after doing a fire walk last year.
