A BRAVE group of Taunton people are planning a skydive next year in aid of two campaigns.

Think Amy was set up by Jane Hofmeister after her daughter was killed by a speeding driver, and Stand Against Violence educates people about the consequences of violence after the murder of Lloyd Fouracre.

Friends Zelda Lang, Jane Hawkings and Evette Chapman will be joined by Jane and her son, Ben, for the skydive, and are collecting at pubs in the town on Friday, November 30, and all the following day at Marks & Spencer.

They also hope to produce a calendar featuring members of the emergency services for the campaign.

The skydive is on May 5.
