THREE sisters have taken on a terrifying challenge to raise money for charity.
Samantha Cameron, 28, Carolyn Brentnall, 26 and Rebecca McDonnell, 24, from Hillingdon, are being sponsored to jump from an aeroplane at Chiltern Airfield on Sanday.
All three women, who work as nurses, were inspired to take on the challenge after seeing first-hand the support charities give those in need.
Rebecca, who works as community school health nurse and has a one-year-old daughter, Macey, said: “I chose to raise funds for the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity because it’s a little-known charity that doesn’t get a lot of support.
“Having seen children who are ill at Hillingdon Hospital, I saw how important their work is.”
Samantha, mum to Grace, three, and Elissia, five, was a nurse at Harefield Hospital in Hill End Road.
Working with patients at the specialist heart and lung hospital inspired her choice of charity, the British Heart Foundation.
Carolyn, whose son Jake is three, is a paediatric nurse at Hillingdon Hospital, and will give her sponsorship money to Children with Cancer.
Rebecca said: “I’m really scared, even though I’ve always wanted to do a skydive. If it wasn’t for the charity I’d definitely have pulled out by now. I will have to jump first or I won’t be able to do it!”
The sisters have pledged to raise £1,500 between them and have so far collected £965.
