A mother raised almost £3,000 for a hospital's intensive care unit with a weekend skydive.
Claire Brindley completed the dive at Beccles Airfield on Saturday and raised £2,700 for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital's neonatal intensive care unit.
The 30-year-old, who works for a recruitment agency, decided to do the jump after the unit saved her nephew, Sebastian Kelf.
As reported in Monday's Norwich Evening News, Sarah Kelf from Thorpe St Andrew gave birth to Sebastian 13 weeks early.
He weighed just 2lbs 4oz but the medical team at the neonatal unit saved his life and he is now three months old.
