THROWING yourself out of a plane from thousands of feet in the air would be daunting for most people.

But for barmaid Kerrie Owens a fundraising skydive for Marie Curie Cancer Care will be particularly terrifying... because she’s scared of heights!

The mother-of-two, 27, who works at the Olde England pub in Corporation Street, is set to take on a tandem skydive with her sister, Danielle, at Blackpool Parachute Centre on May 10.

In the meantime though, she hopes to raise at least £1,000 for Marie Curie, whose nurses helped care for her grandmother, May, before she passed away two years ago.

Kerrie said: “Everyone knows somebody who has been affected by cancer, and I’m no different. Although I’m terrified of heights, I’m looking forward to challenging my fears because it’s all in a good cause.

“My daughters Layla, seven, and Lily-May, three, will both be there supporting me too. In fact, they say they want to catch me when I land!”

Sponsor Kerrie, at the pub on Monday to Wednesday.
