Pals' parachute stunt raises cash for hospice
MORE THAN £4,000 was raised by two women who jumped out of a plane in aid of the North Devon Hospice.
Ali Hunt, head of fundraising at the hospice, and Anne Tattersall, a former fundraiser with the charity, leapt into the skies from several thousand feet.
The two friends dared each other to take part in the sky dive, and also had a side bet as to who could raise the most sponsorship.
Ali Hunt said: "It seemed like a crazy idea at the time, and I was sure that one of us would back down before we had to go through with it.

"But we have been friends for so many years that we obviously didn't want to lose face so we ended up going through with it.
"I think I enjoyed the experience a bit more than Anne, but she certainly trumped me with her fundraising efforts, so I lost the bet and had to hand over a case of her favourite wine."
Anne raised more than £4,000 in sponsorship and had to face her fears when she jumped.
