A 21-YEAR-OLD woman is preparing to take a leap of faith in order to raise money for a charity close to her heart.
Emma Warren, from Chelsworth Avenue in Great Cornard, is readying herself for her first skydive.
Despite admitting to being apprehensive about the impending jump, Emma is determined to see it through and raise as much money as possible for Help For Heroes.
“I know quite a few people in the armed forces and in February a friend of mine called Lewis died in Afghanistan,” she said.
“He was only 20 years old and I want to do this skydive to help others.”
Emma added that she had completed a bungee jump in the past but her tandem skydive on October 8 would be a new experience.
“I am really nervous but at the same time I can’t wait,” she said.
