A GOLF-club member took to the skies to hole cash for Manorlands.

Gillian McAndrew plunged from 15,000 feet in aid of the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice.

The sponsored tandem skydive – at the Black Knights Centre in Cockerham, Lancashire – raised £555.

Previous attempts to make the leap had been postponed due to poor weather.

Gillian, a member of Branshaw Golf Club at Oakworth, has presented a cheque to the hospice.

She was joined at the ceremony by club president John Hodgson.

Manorlands senior community fundraiser, Hayley Ibbotson, said: "It's lovely of Gillian to think of us to benefit from her skydive and we really appreciate her gesture.

"The funds she has kindly donated are a vital contribution and will allow us to continue to make a difference and be there for families in the community which really need our support.

"Branshaw Golf Club is a valued supporter of the hospice and we are so grateful for its continued backing."
