They hope to raise £2,000 in memory of their dad who died from liver and bowel cancer 10 years ago.

With this being the 10-year anniversary of his death, they wanted to do something memorable and adventurous to raise money for the charity which is close to their hearts.

The dive is on Saturday and Amy, 23, said they are all very excited but a little nervous.

‘We’re excited for it because it isn’t something you do every day and we have had it on the cards for a while now,’ she said.

‘The nerves might be setting in now and Chloe is a bit nervous but we are determined and excited. We chose to do a skydive because our dad was quite adventurous and we wanted to do something in his memory.

‘He was a massive Pompey fan and was voted Pompey Supporter of the Year in 2003 which was nice.’

Amy, Adam, 18, and Chloe, 16, will be wearing T-shirts with pictures of Gary and the logo for Cancer Research UK.

They have had help from local businesses which sponsored them and provided them with T-shirts.

Westover Primary School advertised the event in its newsletter.

Amy, from Baffins, added: ‘We would like to say a massive thank you to R&M Electrical who are sponsoring the dive.

‘They have also put posters up all around the dockyard which is great.

‘We would also like to thank Covers, The Hair Sanctuary and B’s Building services who have put up posters and helped to spread the word and get us sponsors.

‘Westover Primary School has also been kind enough to put the story in their newsletter.

‘So many people have come forward to help.’

They will be doing the jump in Salisbury and they are already half-way to the amount they want to raise.

‘We have got around £1,000 which is great,’ said Amy.

‘The businesses have helped with the support and getting the word out there and our family and friends have been really supportive too. I hope we can reach our £2,000 target.’
