MORE than a dozen supermarket staff will plummet 15,000ft during a seaside skydive for charity.

Employees at Penistone Tesco have signed up for the stunt in order to help the store reach its £10,000 target for this year's chosen charity, Diabetes UK.

The 13 members of staff taking part - Heather Brocklehurst, Andrew Presley, Jamie Mellor, Alex Faulkner, Rachael Cook, Matthew Robinson, Kate Gibson, Mick Edwards, Matthew Quinn, Simon Jones, Mandy Young, James Appley, Lizzie Barnett and organiser Rose Robinson - will travel to Bridlington for the dive on October 6.

Organiser Rose, 53, Penistone Tesco community champion, is the oldest participant and needed to obtain a doctor’s certificate to take part.

"We were talking about it one day in the canteen and people were saying how good it was,” she said.

Staff, who have all paid for the cost of their own skydives, hope to top £1,000 from the day.
