Bridgwater hairdresser to do skydive for St Margaret's Hospice
A BRAVE hairdresser from Bridgwater will be jumping 15,000ft in a skydive to raise money for the hospice that cared for her grandmother.
Tasha Taylor, who works at A Cut Above in the town, is terrified of heights but has taken on the challenge to support St Margaret's Hospice.
Tasha, 21, told the Mercury: “The level of care the staff gave my grandmother, Bridie Uminski, was exceptional.
“It was her 80th last Tuesday and they decorated her room and gave her cards. They really made her feel special.
“They sat with her and held her hand when she was finding it hard.”
Bridie lost her fight with lung cancer but Tasha says she wants to give something back to thank the charity for looking after her for six weeks.
She will be doing the skydive at Dunkeswell airfield on November 17.
She said: “I'm really nervous because I'm scared of heights. But everyone's been really supportive and I've raised around £300 so far.
“Any donations would be much appreciated.”
