A Weston Hospicecare supporter has raised hundreds of pounds by taking part in a skydive in memory of her father-in-law.
Clair Satchwell became the latest member of her family to support the hospice in memory of John Satchwell, who was died at the hospice last year.
Clair's 10-year-old son Finlay previously raised money by doing a Michael Jackson-inspired dance routine.
Clair decided to complete the challenge to raise money for the cause and raised £1,108, supported by an audience collection at a CSF Wrestling event.
Clair said jumping out of the plane was an 'amazing' experience. She said: "My father-in-law John was cared for at Weston Hospicecare before he died last year.

"Myself and his son nursed him in his final days at home, as this was his last wish.
"I did the skydive as I want more families to be able to have the amazing care we received."
