Charlotte’s £25k skydive

 reported by Katie Matthews, 26 Nov 2007

Eighteen-year-old Drake musician Charlotte White has raised a massive
 £25,000 in a sponsored skydive for Drake Music and St Rose’s School,

Charlotte originally set herself a target of £3,000.
“I’m now up to £25,000 which is pretty incredible – people’s generosity has been unbelievable,” she said.

“The best bit about the jump was when the parachute came up after
 the free fall. We were just floating around in the air – a sort of out of this world experience. It felt like I was on another planet, completely detached."

“The worst bit was when we were about to jump out of the plane, that was terrifying!”

During the tandem jump Charlotte dislocated her shoulder. “But,” she says, “I would definitely do it again."
