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.

"I did the skydive as I want more families to be able to have the amazing care we received."
