The sky was the limit when Melanie Sutton was bought a 40th birthday present she would never forget.

Melanie, who owns Crumbs Diner at Swinton, was given a SKY DIVE by her brother Phillip. And even though she is scared of heights she decided to take the plunge for charity alongside her sister in law Anne Veilard, of Sprotbrough.

Following her dive at Hibaldstow in Lincolnshire, Melanie told the Times: “There were four of us and I was last to go out - you are at £15,000 feet and suddenly you are falling at 120mph”.

“You can’t breathe, you can’t hear anything and you feel like you are floating - then they pull the parachute. I managed to land on my feet, but Anne landed on her backside!”

The brave pair raised £700 for Air Ambulance and £400 for MacMillan Cancer.
