UEA Film and English Studies student, Natasha Stapley, is testing her nerves next month with a skydive to raise money for Alzheimer's Research UK, in honour of her nan who is living with dementia.
The 19-year-old will be taking the plunge at Ellough Airfield in Beccles on Sunday August 6.
She chose to take on the skydive because she wanted to raise money to help defeat dementia, a condition that has affected her family greatly since her nan Jean Stapley, was diagnosed.
Miss Stapley, from Thorpe St. Andrew, aims to raise £600 for Alzheimer's Research UK.
She said: 'My nan unfortunately has dementia which is why I have chosen to jump for Alzheimer's Research UK. It has affected her and my family in the last few years and she is the person who inspired me to do the skydive. It has been incredible to have money being raised for such a worthy cause.'
