An adrenaline junkie from Skegness has raised hundreds of pounds for two charities after falling 15,000 feet during a tandem skydive.

Joanna Edmonds has managed to raise £307 for The Skegness Day Centre and Keith’s Rescue Dogs after she took part in the fall recently.

“Obviously I felt nervous before the jump, who wouldn’t? I also felt really excited; there was a great atmosphere building at the jump centre,” said Joanna.

“During and after the jump is just exhilarating. I got such an adrenaline rush from doing it – it feels amazing.

“It was so much more than what I expected,” she added.

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

“I haven’t got any more fundraising plans at the minute, I’m so ridiculously busy with University but I’d definitely love to do something for the two charities again in the future,” she said.

“I’m not sure quite how I’d up the adrenaline from that, so maybe a different kind of challenge for the next one,” she added.

“If anyone has ever thought of doing something like a skydive, I urge them to stop thinking and just do it because it really is an amazing experience,” explained Joanna.
