Thames Hospice's chief executive and a shop manager took to the skies to raise vital funds for the charity.
Crowthorne shop manager Annette Welsher and CEO Debbie Raven, who has a fear of heights, took on the challenge on Thursday, September 24.
The pair raised around £2,000 from the 13,000 foot freefall at Old Sarum Airfield in Salisbury.
Debbie said: “It was the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done but I am so delighted to have conquered my fears to raise vital funds for the hospice.”
The sky dive was done with the help of The Red Devils, the official display team of the Parachute Regiment.
Annette said: “I was very calm in the plane climbing up, but once that door opened I thought ‘what have I done?’.
“It was a truly amazing experience and the Red Devils were so professional.”
