A Nottingham pair will take part in a skydive to raise money for a local charity that offers support to survivors of sexual abuse, writes Harry Briggs.

Rachael Cumberland and Declan Bell are raising money for S.H.E. UK, whose initials stand for supporting, healing and educating. Rachel has worked for the charity for two years.

With just over a month to go before the jump in Langar, the pair are trying to drum up support for the daredevil feat.

Twenty-nine-year-old Rachael, of Fernwood, Newark, said: “I’ve always wanted to do a skydive and I’m turning 30 this year, so that played a part. I’m nervous but it will make it all worthwhile doing it for such a good charity. We would like to raise £500 between us but any amount raised is great.”

She has already taken part in several fundraisers for the charity and has also spent time raising cash for Help for Heroes.

Declan, 24, lives in Sneinton.

S.H.E. UK is based at the Garden Street Family Centre in Radford. It was set up in 1998.

People can contact the charity via its website www.she-uk.org.uk or by telephoning 01623622916.
