THESE brave souls are plunging up to 14,000 feet for charity - despite being afraid of heights.
A group of ten will take to the skies for a tandem parachute jump in aid of the British Liver Trust, a cause close to their hearts as members or supporters of the Free From Addiction alcohol support group group.
For most it will be a day to face their fears as well as a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
“I’m absolutely petrified of heights”, said support group founder Gary Topley.
“I can go up a ladder but not back down, I’m not sure whether it is vertigo or what.
“When you have a fear you’ve got to try and overcome it.
“We’re all there as a group to support each other and I’ve got to lead by example.”
The group need to raise £4,300 for the jump, to take place at Langer Airfield in Nottingham in October.
