MUM-of-two Mandy Beattie is all set to do a tandem parachute jump on Saturday to raise cash for Holbeach and Fenland Gymnastics Club.

Her daughters, Caitlyn (12) and Jade (10), are members of the club which has been forced to find a new base and the move from Peele Community College to a now derelict warehouse will cost £45,000.

Mandy (40), of Midsummer Gardens, Long Sutton, has received £700 in sponsorship pledges but hopes for more donations before she takes the 13,500 ft plunge over Chatteris Airfield.

Mandy did a similar jump ten years ago to raise money for a burns unit after Jade was scalded.

She says she was terrified then, because she didn’t know what to expect, but she’s eagerly anticipating the opportunity.

“I think I am going through my mid-life crisis,” she said.
