A BRAVE Evesham woman has jumped at the opportunity to take part in a tandem skydive for charity.

Bethany Castle, 22, will be taking the 10,000ft plunge from a plane at Hinton Airfield, near Brackley, on Sunday (July 12).

Ms Castle hopes to raise £500 for The Shakespeare Hospice, an independent charity that provides specialist care for people living with serious illnesses.

“I can’t wait for my skydive and to raise some money for charity. I don’t think the nerves have kicked in quite yet,” Ms Castle said.

“My friend initially approached me about the idea and I thought it sounded like so much fun.

“She explained that it would be for a great charity helping people who live with life limiting illnesses and their families, so I thought what better reason to jump out of a plane,” she added.
