STAFF members at a town centre pub are planning a charity skydive to raise funds for the Epilepsy Society.

It’s part of a fundraising campaign in memory of a young woman who died from epilepsy.

Jyneen Haughie’s sister, Clareese, died aged just 22 in September last year after suffering with the condition throughout her life.

In her memory Jyneen, who runs The Corner Pin, has been raising funds and awareness for the charity.

To date, more than £5,000 has been raised – but when a group of 25 people take to the skies later this year they’re hoping it’ll rise even further.

They held a raffle in the pub recently, raising more than £1,000..

Jyneen said: “We held a raffle which included a PDC signed dart board, signed football shirts and boots and loads of other prizes. We had a ‘pie the staff’ event where people could cream pie any member of staff. I arranged this in memory of my little sister who we suddenly lost in September 2023.

“She had suffered with epilepsy throughout her short life and upon the autopsy results this is what took her from us. We are making donations in her memory to the Epilepsy Society.

“We have arranged a charity skydive on May 29 which would have been Clareese’s 23rd birthday and so far there is 20 friends and family signed up to jump, including my mother and brother.”
