A brave Harborough woman is getting ready for daring fundraiser to raise awareness of an issue close to her heart.

Chelsea Potts lost a friend due to mental health and now she wants to raise money to help others.

To do that, she is going to thrown herself out of an plane at 15,000ft as part of a tandem skydive on June 17.

The money she raises will go to Mind MAP who offer free or low cost counselling to people in Market Harborough - described as 'a much needed service in our town' by Chelsea.

She added: "I decided to do the skydive after losing a close friend due to mental health and she had helped me in the past with my personal struggles.

"So I understand how hard it is to get NHS mental health services due to the long waiting times.

"That’s why I want to raise as much as I can to help people in our community especially during these challenging times."
