Rebecca Kightly and Tracey Burton have set a target of £600 in order to be able to make a tandem jump for the charity.

The coffee morning at Beech Court residential home in Parsons Lane, Littleport, helped boost the money raising pot for Age UK.

The parachute jump will take place in September.

The two women jumping for charity are from Axiom Housing head office in Peterborough, which runs the home at Littleport.
