THERAPIST Lynni Newsome has plummeted 15,000 ft through the air for the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust.

Lynni who runs Top2Toe in Rastrick took to the skies to raise nearly £500 for the charity set up in memory of former Brighouse High School student Laura Crane.

She said: “The sky dive was amazing and the air base at Lincolnshire was fantastic. I would definitely love to do it again.”

Lynni has been supporting the charity over the last few months and has already raised £260 by offering No Hands massage for a discount prize.

“I was nervous when I did the jump. The weather wasn’t great to start with and we didn’t know if we would be able to jump,” she said.

“The staff help to make you feel at ease and are very friendly. Training was very clear and I finally got to jump at 2.30pm.

“The scariest part was waiting to jump out of the plane. Then the free fall is 60 seconds. Then the parachute opened and five minutes fall. I landed on my bottom but with my thumbs up.”

Lynni is keen to support the charity and is now offering the No Hands massage at £10 but instead of just one day a week it will be available every day.

“The discounted massages were such a success that they will continue all this year, for the Laura Crane Trust,” she added.
