The trio, who have all paid for the costs of the skydive themselves, are raising money for Help Me, I’m Fine – a charity based in Misterton – and they hope to raise more than £1,000.

The charity was founded by Helen Cousin in the summer of 2017 after her 16-year-old daughter Maisie took her own life.

Sharon – Helen’s sister and Maisie’s auntie – was the first to sign up to the challenge and said: “I’ve been wanting to do a challenge for a while, so on New Year’s Day, I bit the bullet and signed up to do the skydive.” To help visit www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/helpmeimfineskydiveteam2019 page.
