Gran takes the plunge

A SOUTH Yorkshire gran is set to plunge up to 15,000 feet on her first ever sky dive - in a bid to raise £2,000 for the Mothers’ Union.

Sheila Barnes, aged 74, from Warmsworth, is to donated the cash to a scheme called Away From It All, which sends needy families on much needed holiday breaks.

Sheila will make her jump at Brigg airfield on September 10, accompanied by an experienced sky diver.
