A charity worker is taking on her biggest fear headlong in a fund-raising challenge.

Emma Longmore, a development officer at HOPE in Worksop, will be conquering her fear of heights by doing a tandem skydive on January 21 to raise vital funds for HOPE’s community services.

The fear conquering event comes, as HOPE prepares to celebrate its 20th anniversary, since opening back in 1996.

Emma said: “I wanted to do something memorable for this amazing charity, and I thought why not push myself to my limit, by doing something extreme, something that scares me solid.

“I am so grateful to everyone who has donated to my Just Giving page so far, all donations go towards helping a brilliant charity, who work so hard to help those in crisis”.
