GRATEFUL Donna Bristow jumped from 15,000 feet to thank a hospice for its care.

Donna went on the highest parachute jump possible to raise money for St Wilfrid’s Hospice.

She said: “I wanted to go to 15,000ft rather than 10,000ft if I was going to jump for the hospice because I wanted to be as close to my mum as possible.

Janet Bristow, 60, passed away in 2013 after being ill with cancer for six months in which she was looked after by St Wilfrid’s.

Donna, of Strange Gardens, said: “The hospice were absolutely amazing. I can’t thank them enough. They were so supportive, not just of my mum but of all family.”

Donna, 39, raised £1,211 in the hospice’s Leap for Love which took place above Salisbury.

“The adrenaline was unbelievable,” she said. “It was something I did to support the hospice and for my mum as well.

“I’m grateful to everyone who supported me.”
