DARE devil fundraisers are being encouraged to take on a hair-raising challenge to make some cash for a Worcester charity.

Sight Concern Worcestershire, based in Sansome Walk, is planning a tandem skydive weekend at Brackley Airfield, near Oxford, this summer.

The jump would see fundraisers leap from thousands of feet on a date to be confirmed in either June or July.

There are already a few interested fliers but anyone who would like to formally sign up will need to raise at least £395 to cover the cost of the dive, anything over that will go to Sight Concern.

Keith Hoare, fundraising officer, said: "Throughout 2014 Sight Concern is really keen to offer its supporters a range of exciting events and challenges to take part in, and that we hope will be rewarding for both those who participate and the charity.

"We have not organised a skydive for a number of years so we hope to receive lots of interest for this event. Go on, give it a go."

Anyone that would like to get involved should visit sightconcern.co.uk.
