A beautician took part in a skydive to raise money for a cancer charity in memory of a mum who died from a rare form of the disease.

Laura Crawley who works at Vanity Beauty Academy on Sun Street, Hitchin, took the plunge for the neck and head cancer Get-A-Head charity in tribute to Hitchin mum-of-three Anne Aurousseau who died last year, aged 37, from adeniod cystic carcinoma.

Laura said: “Anne was inspirational, taking on the disease with such bravery and determination.”

Louise Newton from Get-A-Head added: “Since Anne’s fundraising started in 2012, £31,357.97 has been raised in her name.”
