JUMPING from a plane is not for the faint-hearted.
For Stacey Quar, a legal eagle with business law firm Graeme Quar & Co in Fareham, it was all for a good cause.
Trainee legal executive Stacey, 29, a former Portsmouth Grammar School pupil, raised £500 to support people with Crohn’s disease by doing a tandem parachute jump. The mother-of-two, from Petersfield, was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2009. It’s, a chronic inflammatory disease of the intestines.
She said: ‘I have got Crohn’s so I wanted to do something to raise money and awareness for Crohn’s support charity.
‘A lot of people don’t know what Crohn’s is. They think it’s contagious, which is not true. It is just something that happens to some people.’
The tandem parachute jump took place at Old Sarum, near Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain.
Crohn’s disease affects between 30,000 and 60,000 people in the UK.
