A WOKINGHAM resident will be jumping 10,000 feet in March in aid of a charity.

Julie Frewin, from Wokingham, is aiming to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy UK.

Mrs Frewin’s husband, Andy, and her brother, Mark, were both diagnosed with muscular illnesses.

She said: “I decided to do a skydive as I want to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy. I am petrified of heights and thought it would be a great challenge for me, as my husband and brother face challenges every day.”

“Muscular Dystrophy UK is so important as money raised helps with the research into the different types and in aiding for less able bodied people to have the chance to lead a better life.”
