A young Stopsley woman is taking to the skies to help the charity that cared for her beloved nan in her final days.

Kelly Kerrigan, 21, will parachute from 10,000ft over Brackley airport in Oxfordshire on September 12 in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Kelly said: “They looked after my nan, Marie Marcantonio, when she was unwell and supported her on her final journey in life, before she died in September 2012. She was such a lovely lady and I wanted to do something to say thank you for all they did for her.

“I can never repay them for their support and this is the least I can do to show my appreciation.”

Assistant care manager Kelly is hoping her daredevil stunt will double as an exciting day out for some of her clients at and is looking into booking a minibus for them.

She’s paid the £250 skydive fee herself, so every penny she raises will go to the charity –and is appealing to members of the public to support her.
