A GREAT Sutton fundraiser will be hoping the sun shines on her birthday – as that is the day she will be hitting the heights for a charity skydive.
Jayne Robb, 28, of Bridgewood Drive, will take part in the fundraising event with her friend Emma Trousedale.
Both are aiming to raise as much money as possible for the Alzheimer’s Society, a cause with personal significance for Jayne, a lettings manager at Minchin Fellows estate agents in Chester.
Jayne said: “My grandad has Alzheimer’s and I feel a bit helpless as he currently lives in Ireland with my nan.
“Both of them are looking to move back to Great Sutton as they used to live there, but at the moment it is difficult to see them.
“I have always wanted to do a skydive and I felt this was a good charity to raise money for. The society helps care for people with Alzheimer’s and also does a good amount of research.”
Jayne had hoped to do the skydive a couple of weeks ago at Whitchurch Airfield, but terrible weather meant the challenge had to be postponed.
“We had all the training needed and we were just waiting for the skies to clear.
“I was excited for a few hours then got quite nervous, then it was clear we weren’t going to get to do it on the day as it just kept raining.
“It has been rearranged for August 24, which just happens to be my birthday, so I’m hoping the weather will be good!”
Jayne has so far raised about £400 and people wanting to help boost the total can do so online at www.justgiving.com/Jayne-Robb, or visit the Minchin Fellows office on Lower Bridge Street for a sponsor sheet.
