A FEARLESS Hunmanby woman is taking a leap of faith for charity!

Lisa Thompson, of Constable Road, is embarking on a sponsored parachute jump in Grindale next Saturday for St Catherine’s Hospice.

Ms Thompson, who works at the Cottage Inn, Cross Hill, said she was relishing the challenge.

She said: “I saw it on an advert in the charity’s window and went from there.

“I’ve done a few things for charity before including a sponsored walk and head shave and wanted to do something else.

“I’m feeling alright about the jump at the moment though I’ve only been on a plane twice and that was 11 years apart!

“But I am looking forward to it as it’s for a good cause and there is no going back now.

“I’m hoping to raise around £1,000 and should have that amount already which is great.”
