Three staff from an Upminster beauty clinic are taking the plunge for St Francis Hospice.

Amanda Stokes, Sarah McFarland and Danielle Price, who work at Aesthetics of Essex in Howard Road, will take part in a sponsored skydive for the Havering-atte-Bower charity on June 16 in Kent.

Danielle said: “We wanted to do something to raise money for the hospice as we’ve all known people who have received care from the wonderful staff.

“The skydive was the next big event so we signed up to take part.

“We also thought a fundraiser the week before would be great – so we have a live singer and a DJ donating their time to entertain us, and local businesses have been donating raffle prizes.
