Mimram Vets' practice manager Alexandra Spelzini and receptionist Tracey Peverall are both doing a skydive to raise £2,000 for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

The charity trains dogs to alert deaf people to important and life-saving sounds, such as fire alarms, intruder alarms, and baby monitors.

Alexandra said: "I have wanted to do something special to raise money for charity for a while and a skydive looks really exciting, if a little terrifying."

Tracey added: "I had considered doing a skydive before, but my father talked me out of it. Sadly, he is not around anymore, so I'm only going to have myself to blame."
