THRILL-SEEKING Michele Rose left the ground behind when she hopped on top of a plane to brave a charity wing walk, raising £4,790 for the Primrose Hospice, writes Sophie Baram.

Michele undertook the daredevil challenge in memory of her friend Sally Taylor, who was from Chaddesley Corbett and lost her 17-year mouth cancer battle in July.

She said: “Sally was so strong up until the end and so I was determined to take on a really big, scary challenge.

“She was a wonderful friend to me, so loyal and supportive – particularly when I went through my own cancer battle 16 years ago.”

Speaking about the experience she said: “The sense of freedom as you fly through the air is one I will never forget and I know Sally would have been laughing along with me.”

Michele, who works for Bloor Homes Midlands, thanked everyone who has sponsored her.

“I’ve always wanted to do a wing walk but never had the nerve to see it through.

“Sally’s experience was the nudge I needed to give it a go and I’m so glad I did.

“In her last few weeks, Sally was looked after so brilliantly by the team at the Primrose Hospice in Bromsgrove.

“I can’t do anything more to help Sally but it’s a great comfort to know the money I raise for the hospice will help others who need their care and support.”
