The mayor of Chorley is taking to the skies to raise money for charity.
Councillor Doreen Dickinson, is to take part in a 10,000ft sky dive for The Alzheimer’s Society.
She decided she wanted to take up a sponsored challenge during her year in office and chose the tandem freefall parachute jump.
Doreen, 83, is being fully supported by her children and grandchildren.
She said: “I’ve passed a medical and been through a risk assessment so now it’s all systems go.
“At 83 years old I thought a sky dive was a good way to prove you are never too old to do these things. The Alzheimer’s Society is a charity very close to my family.”
Anyone who would like to sponsor the Mayor can do so on her Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/mayorofchorley
The Mayor’s skydiving challenge will take place at Cockerham near Lancaster on September 26.
