A BURNHAM daredevil will be combining the holiday of a lifetime with a thrill of a lifetime feat to raise money for charity.

Dot Anderson is a keen member of the town’s Moose Ladies Circle International Lodge 123, and is currently serving as the group’s president.

In early April, the 71-year-old is planning a trip to visit family in Australia – and plans to take on a tandem parachute jump with her nephew Michael to raise funds.

Proceeds will be split between the Children’s Hospice South West, Weston Hospicecare and St Margaret’s Hospice in Taunton.
