Many 75-year-olds would be forgiven for thinking the chance to jump from 10,000 feet in a tandem skydive for the very first time will have passed them by.

But not for thrill-seeking Perth OAP Celia Fenwick. What was first a gag gift from her family for her 75th birthday, has now turned into a selfless charity campaign as the North Muirton native gets ready to take the ultimate plunge later this month.Raising money towards causes close to her heart – Pancreatic Cancer UK and the British Heart Foundation – Celia will take to the skies from the Skydive St Andrews Centre in Glenrothes on Sunday, August 28.She will experience a 30-second free fall – diving at up to 120mph – before the instructor deploys the parachute at around 5000 feet.Celia, who has never jumped from a plane before, said: “I am not worried about jumping out - it is the landing that I am worried about!“I have always said I would fancy doing it and it is for a good cause.

My family remembered me saying that and bought me it as a gift.“I am quite looking forward to it. I am sure we will be in safe hands.”Celia joked: “It could be quite windy and I could get blown out to sea!“But I hope the weather is okay and it doesn’t get called off.
