A GRANDDAUGHTER has raised over £750 for Cancer Research UK in memory of her grandad.

Abbie Scarrott, 21, from Offenham lost her grandad Maurice Yeates to cancer just before Christmas and went past her target of £500.

She said: "My Grandad was the bravest man and I want to give something back, I have decided to do a SkyDive in aid of Cancer Research.

"Those of you that know me will know that just before Christmas I lost my Grandad after a long fight against cancer.

"I can't take away the hurt that my Grandad, myself and my family felt but I can try to help prevent the hurt of someone else, we all can.

"It was an amazing experience and I am absolutely blown away with the amount of generosity from people, it all goes towards a great cause."
