Archant

A granddaughter who made £1,000 on a charity skydive just two days before her grandmother died of a brain tumour wants to thank those who sponsored her.

Natasha Fowler, 25, wanted to raise money for FORCE after the diagnosis of her grandma with cancer last year.

She performed a tandem skydive last month at Dunkeswell airfield, jumping out a plane at 15,000 ft, but unfortunately Zandra Pugsley, 66, died just two days later from her illness.

Natasha, who works at Upper Cut hair salon in Sidmouth, wanted to thank the friends, family, colleagues and customers at the hair salon she works at for sponsoring her.

She went to the FORCE office last week to hand over the money, totalling more than £1,000 in sponsorship, and said she was proud her grandmother got to see her take on the skydive before she passed away, and thanked everyone for supporting her.
