BRAVE Joanne Buck plunged from the sky to raise money for her sister Ruth, who was diagnosed with bowel cancer.

Joanne, from Taunton, took a jump from 15,000 feet above from Dunkeswell Airfield in the Blackdowns.

The fundraiser, pictured with a dive instructor, has raised more than £1,000 for the ‘Beating Bowel Cancer’ group. Ruth has now received the all-clear following chemotherapy.
