A WOMAN who has battled breast cancer after being diagnosed with the disease in 2012 vowed to undertake a daring skydive to raise funds for the Primrose Hospice.
Gill Potter was so impressed with the work the charity did and the support she received that she wanted to give something back.
But, after her oncologist recommended that it would not be wise for her to do the jump, due to her weakened sternum bone, her brother-in-law Tony Vine stepped in to take her place.
He said: “I lost my Brother to Cancer 12 months ago so it a cause very close to my heart. I have always wanted to do a skydive, I really cannot wait.”
The pair have been overwhelmed with the generous support they have received and have now qudrupled their original £500 fund-raising target from £500 to £200.
They said they would like to thank LG Harris, Alan R Prince Flowers, Ryland Centre, family, friends and work colleagues who have given fantastic support.
