Tigan's taking to the skies for charity
A 25-YEAR-OLD woman is taking to the skies to raise money for a cancer charity.
Tigan Stokes, who lives in Stoke with her daughter Rianna, aged 6, is jumping out of a plane in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
She is keen to support the charity as they helped her great-grandmother, Isabel Furse, when she was suffering with cancer.
Tigan has already raised over £400 in sponsorship for the jump which she will do at Perranporth airfield in Cornwall on March 16.
"I'm a mixture of emotions – I'm excited and nervous.
"I'm happy to be able to raise the money for such a good cause.
"Marie Curie helped nanny Furse die at home where she was more comfortable. She passed away when I was in secondary school and it just makes you think more about life and how precious it is.
"They also helped my nan Christine Connolly to cope with all the stress and anguish while and after my great-grandmother was dying."
