Stourbridge teen completes charity skydive in memory of mum
11:00am Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
A STOURBRIDGE teenager plummeted 18,000ft out of a plane on the anniversary of her mother’s death.
Keira Lockie-Anrig completed a sponsored skydive on Monday (August 26) in memory of her mother Monica Anrig, who died from pancreatic cancer 11 years ago, aged 43.
The brave teen, travelled to Brackely Skydive Centre in Northamptonshire to complete her challenge and said it was an “amazing” experience.
She has raised £1,344.17 for Macmillan Cancer Support through sponsorship and a cake sale at her former college, King Edward VI College in Stourbridge, which raised £152 and a non-uniform day at her old high school, The Crestwood School in Kingswinford, which raised £479.
She said:”Hopefully we’ll be able to make a real contribution to those affected by cancer.”
