Skydiving Gemma aids Paignton Zoo

Sidmouth-based parents wait all day to see daughter in charity sky dive

THE daughter of a former Sidmouth town councillor has done a sky dive to fundraise for Paignton Zoo.

Gemma Ambrose, 24, an account executive with RH Partners, Exeter, is pictured doing the skydive at Dunkeswell Airfield last month.

Her parents, David and Linda, who live in Temple Street, Sidmouth, waited with her all day for the jump because of bad weather.

“Gemma was able to take to the sky just before 5pm,” said David. “The jump was from 15,000 feet and she was first out of the ‘plane.”

Money she raises will go to the zoo’s Whitley Wild Life Trust, which her company is involved in advertising.
