DAREDEVIL Patricia Glave will mark her 80th birthday in style - by jumping 2,000 feet from a plane.


Patricia, of Wakefield Road, Athersley, will take part in a skydive in celebration of her birthday on March 3.


"It's something I've wanted to do for years and I've never got to do it. If I don't do it now, I never will," she said.


Patricia had to get her GP to sign a form to say she was fit to do the jump.


Patricia will pay to take part in the skydive, but is inviting charities and individuals to collect for their own charities in her name.

 

She will do the skydive at Hibaldstow, North Lincolnshire, on March 2.
