Vicky Haw, 37, a regional manager for the Co-op in Lincolnshire, took part in her first ever jump, leaping from around 2.5 miles above Sibson, Peterborough, to raise money in memory of a colleague’s son who had lost his battle for life in April.

A total of £37,000 raised by the colleagues across the Co-op will be donated to Zoe’s Place baby hospice.

Vicky said: "The jump was really exhilarating – and "flew" by so quickly.

"The free-fall was rapid and really good fun, then once the parachute opening everything seemed so calm and quiet and the view was fantastic."
