Quartet jump in Julie's memory

The family and friends of a 53-year-old woman who lost her battle with cancer have raised more than £6,000 in her memory after taking part in a charity sky dive.

Martin Woodcraft, from Newmarket, took to the skies to raise money for West Suffolk Hospital's Ward G1 Macmillan Unit in memory of his late wife Julie.

He was joined by family friends Charley Reynolds, Rick Mogan and Aston Mottley, who are all from the Red Lodge area, with Charley and Aston aged just 16 when they bravely took to the skies.

In total, the quartet raised a fantastic £6,560.20 for the hospital unit.

Martin said: "It was an amazing experience, nerve-wracking at time. But the thought of jumping in memory of Julie and supporting such an amazing part of West Suffolk Hospital kept us going.

"It was a great thing to do and we were blown away by the amount of support and fundraising we got.

"Julie was my soul mate and best friend as well as my wife. She was the sort of person who would help anybody out and always with a big smile - whether that was in work or play.

"We would like to thank everyone who supported our efforts and helped raise a fantastic total for a worthwhile charity."

Aston said: "I lost an amazing person in my life, like a second mum. Someone who

was always there and knew how to make everyone smile.

"Doing this skydive was a big challenge for us all, but I certainly feel like I have accomplished something."
