A BRAVE carer is jumping for joy after raising £1,000 for charity by falling from the skies.
Kelsey Iley took the plunge and jumped from an aeroplane in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
She had set a fundraising target of £1,000 and broke through that with the support of family and friends.
The 20-year-old, of Bruce Glazier Terrace, Shotton Collery, decided to do the jump after seeing the support that Macmillan provides first hand through her work.
Daredevil Kelsey, who is a carer for Comfort Care, said: “I’ve been sponsored by a lot of people, including Comfort Care.
“I do home care for the elderly and I see the help that MacMillan provides and I think it’s a really good cause to raise money for.”
She did her jump at Shotton Airfield while family, friends and clients watched on.
Kelsey added: “The jump went really well and it was better than I expected it to be.
“I would love to do it again.
“I wasn’t scared or nervous at all, I just really enjoyed it.”
