Colleagues who work at a Sutton-based facility that helps people with brain injuries are set to do a 10,000ft skydive to raise money for a charity close to their hearts.

Gemma Stirland, Steph Lane, Nikki Needham, Lisa Todd and Sharon Cross will all be doing the daredevil stunt on 13th July.

They work together at Cambian Grange, on Mason Street, which offers specialist services to men with acquired brain injuries.

They decided to take on the terrifying challenge to raise money for brain injury charity Headway.

Said Gemma (21), who is a support worker at the private hospital: “None of us have ever done anything like this before.

“Some of us are nervous and some excited.”

She added: “Acquired brain injury is a very real issue for us. This is also to help people lke the friends and family who are not in the hospital but are affected. It’s a really worthwhile cause.”

Altogether the women would like to raise around £2,500 for Headway and they can be sponsored at www.doitforcharity.com/gstirland.

Cambian Grange treats men aged 18-65 who encounter various problems following a brain injury.

It aims to rehabilitate them so they can live back in the community.
