A SENIOR care assistant at a residential home is set to take to the sky to raise funds for residents.

Caroline Butcher, 27, of Moorlands in Melbourn, will take part in a sponsored tandem sky dive next month.

She said: "I still can't quite believe that I'm doing it - it's quite a scary thought.

"However, it's very exciting and all for a good cause."

Caroline, left, who lives in Royston, set a £1,000 fundraising target, which she has already reached.

She said: "The funds are all for the residents and we're looking to take them all to the seaside at some point.

"Money will also be used to buy equipment.

"The residents think I'm mad jumping from a plane, but they've all been very supportive."

Moorlands manager Denise Taylor said: "She's done brilliantly to raise the money and we are all very proud of her.

"I think she's very brave, and I'm sure she will enjoy the experience."

# Anyone who would like to sponsor Caroline's jump, on May 28 in Chatteris, should call 01763 260564.
