A DARING Hampshire mum has dived out of a plane to raise cash for sick children.

Southampton mum-of-two Tracy Gardener carried out the brave stunt, raising almost £600 which will go to Southampton General Hospital’s Piam Brown ward.

Tracy, from Sholing, works at the cafe in the hedge End store Kiddicare, which has already donated £150 worth of new toys to the oncology unit.

She was inspired to do the fundraiser by seven-year-old Issey Riley who has been fundraising for the ward since she was diagnosed with a brain tumour last August and has so far raised £4,000.

Tracy’s colleague Natalie Truman, a mum-of-four from Bursledon, will also be doing a skydive in May for the same cause.
