Twin sisters, who braved a skydive together, have raised the fabulous total of £2,700 for charity.

Linda Barrowclough, who is financial and strategic director at Trawden-based adhesives company, Innova Solutions, took to the skies over Lancaster to complete a tandem skydive with her twin sister, Julie.

They jumped 10,000 feet with a freefall down to 5,000 feet at 120 mph, in support of the MS Trust.

The trust’s work focuses on forward-thinking projects which are delivering positive change in Multiple Sclerosis care by bringing key members of the MS community together, ensuring that no one has to face the condition alone.

The money raised by the twins will go towards funding ground-breaking projects that the charity work on in support of MS sufferers.

Linda, who lives in Burnley, had a very personal reason to take part in the "Jump in June."

She said:“Last year I had a family member diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, so I have first-hand experience of the support that the MS trust gives to people diagnosed with the disease, and an insight into the incredible work they do.

“It was an amazing experience, truly exhilarating, and one that I will remember for a long

time.

"’l will forever be able to look up at the clouds and remember that feeling.

“I want to thank everyone for their donations, both Julie and I have been blown away by the level of generosity shown by our supporters."
