A CHARITY fundraiser is plucking up the courage to do a skydive which will raise money for a wildlife group.

Virginia Harvey, 22, of Wilpshire, will drop several thousand feet on November 24 at a site near Cambridge for the Atlantic Whale Foundation (AWF).

The challenge is part of AWF's Jump for Sri Lanka scheme which helps a mixture of projects in the country such as protecting elephants, leopards and people.

Virginia said: "Each project has its own target amount.

"I'm really excited about the jump and a little bit nervous. It's a really worthwhile charity and hopefully I can raise a lot of money."

To sponsor Virginia ring her on 01254 246205.
