An adrenaline junkie from Skegness will soon take part in a 15,000 feet tandem skydive and at the same time raise money for two important charities.

Joanna Edmonds, 19, of Park Avenue, says she is ‘positively looking forward’ to the free-fall and ‘can’t wait’ to do it on May 12.

“I’m really excited and I love doing this sort of thing,” said Joanna.

It’s not the first time, Joanna has done something exciting and blood pumping for charity, as she did a bungee jump last year to raise money for the Skegness Day Centre.

“I did a bungee jump last year for the centre, which is close to my heart as my mum Christine used to work there,” Joanna added.

This time, the student nurse will be raising money for Keith’s Rescue Dogs and Skegness Day Centre, with the hope of raising as much as she can for these two worthy local causes.

“I chose those two causes because they really do need the support of local people,” explained Joanna.

The tandem free-fall will be taking place at Hibaldstow Airfield near Brigg - a popular location which offers the highest skydive in the UK.

The Skegness Day Centre provides day care for the elderly to give carers a chance for respite.

Keith’s Rescue Dogs, meanwhile, is devoted to the welfare of abandoned dogs in the Lincolnshire area.
