Two friends from Newtown have set themselves the challenge of raising money for a world-leading cancer centre by skydiving.

Despite being scared of heights, Jack Carroll and Kamal Lloyd-Jones are planning to jump 15,000 feet from a plane for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

"We wanted to step it up a bit and do something bigger for charity," said 23-year-old Jack. "Way too many people are effected by cancer. We know that Covid has had a huge impact but we also want to raise awareness that there are other causes that need our help too."

Jack, who works for Invertek in Welshpool, and 22-year-old Kamal who works at G Owens and Sons in Newtown have known each other since primary school.

"We're both very nervous and excited. Everytime we speak about it we get butterflies," Jack added. "It's the scare factor of it."

"We'll risk our lives but it's all for a good cause."
