Dedicated fundraiser Sue Marley is taking to the sky in a bid to raise yet more cash for charity in memory of her daughter.

Mrs Marley, of Langdale Drive, Low Ackworth, will take flight in tandem with her niece, Brogan Hayes, to raise cash in honour of Rebecca Marley, who died at 27-years-old from cystic fibrosis.

The former Olympic torch bearer will mark the fourth anniversary of her daughter’s death on June 10 by taking a leap of faith out of an aeroplane in the name of her charity, Becci’s Find A Cure Memorial Fund.

Mrs Marley, 56, said: “I’m doing this in Rebecca’s memory. She was such a courageous girl that I just thought this year I would push myself to the limit and try to get some of the courage she had.”

Mrs Marley, who already has an MBE for her fundraising efforts, hopes to raise £1,000 from the sky high challenge.

Miss Hayes, 23, of Healdfield Road, Castleford, will also be raising money for the charity, Mind.

Mrs Marley added: “The devastation of losing a child never leaves you and I just want to continue raising money in the hope a cure will be found and other families won’t have to go through this.

“In April, four young people died from cystic fibrosis in one week. I don’t think people realise how awful a disease it is, that’s why I’m so passionate about fundraising.”
