A student at the University of East Anglia is preparing for a 160ft bungee jump in aid of the eating disorder charity BEAT.
On 22 July, Jodie Rowson, will jump 160ft from the O2 Tower in London.
The 19-year-old, who is currently studying history at the UEA explained why she had decided to take on the challenge: 'My dance teacher and close friend of ten years lost her sister to anorexia. I've always wanted to raise money for charity and there is no better cause or person I could support in doing so.
'Beat provides so much support for those who are suffering and their families, so I hope by doing this bungee jump I will raise more awareness about the incredible work the charity offers.'
Originally hoping to raise £500 the Miss Rowson has already beaten her target and is now aiming to raise as much as possible for the organisation.
