A thrillseeking fundraiser has gone from a nervous tandem jumper to qualified solo skydiver - having taken her first flying leap for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) in July.
Tracy Stephens, 36, braved two tandem skydives in July last year, raising more than £450 for the charity, and having caught the bug has now graduated UK Parachuting’s Accelerated Free Fall course.
Tracy, from Felixstowe, has also been helping out at the charity’s community events with her husband Justin
She said: “We got involved volunteering with EACH because we had some spare time and decided to try and give something back.
Speaking about her new love of skydiving, she added: “As soon as I was on the ground I knew immediately I had to jump again.”
EACH’s skydiving sessions, at Beccles Airfield, take place on Sunday, May 6, and Sunday, September 6 this year.
