Bad weather scupper’s grandmother’s skydive

Waiting for Video...

A 71-year-old grandmother was left grounded after high winds led to the cancellation of her charity skydive.

Pauline Robins, of Crawley Down, was due to make a tandem jump from 10,000ft over Kent on May 10 to raise money for the Queen Victoria Hospital.

The jump has now been rescheduled for May 25 and Pauline, who is terrified of heights, is determined to complete the challenge.

Describing the moment she was told the jump had been cancelled, Pauline said: “It felt horrible. The briefing had made me more scared than I already was and I just wanted it all over with.”

Pauline has raised more than £1,000 via her JustGiving page and people can still sponsor her.

Pauline is pictured with her grandson, Josh, 7, who ran the Brighton Marathon Mini Mile in aid of the RNLI.
