A woman is already planning her next jump after skydiving to raise funds for the hospice that cared for her mum.

Tina Clark skydived from 10,000ft to raise £1,276 for Saint Francis Hospice in memory of her mum, Brenda Clark, who lived in Dagenham.

“It was the most amazing and surreal experience of my life,” Tina said.

She added she will “definitely” do it again and plans to jump from 15,000ft next time.

“It's so difficult to describe the feeling when you’re free falling, it's just magical and the view is out of this world,” Tina said.
