A great-grandmother who jumped out of a plane for charity is celebrating raising hundreds of pounds.
Ann Allen, now 77, who lives in Isaacs Road, Cobholm, has raised £1240 for charity after she took part in a skydive while on a trip to Australia last October to see her friends.
The money will be split between the Anglian Air Ambulance and Help for Heroes charities.
'Someone talked me into doing it just before I left for Australia. Then the nerves kicked in.
'I was fine in the plane once I got in it though. When I jumped out and was free-falling I loved every minute of it.
The mother-of-four, who has four children and seven great-grandchildren, said she wanted to thank all her friends and family and all the strangers who donated.
'I just want to say a big thank you to all the people at the Lady Haven pub who sponsored me and a special thanks to Vinny who was with me when in Australia and was there for me when I landed.'
