A local mum faced her fears recently by taking part in a 100ft free-fall event for charity.

The current Miss Aberdeen, Sherylanne Green, took part in the Adrenalin Drop at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Saturday, May 19.

Sherylanne (27), who is formerly from Tarves, did the challenge in aid of The Archie Foundation.

She said: “At first I thought I’d never do it because I’m so afraid of heights, but I watched a couple videos of 100ft free-falls and I thought it didn’t look so bad. So I thought why not give myself a huge challenge and do the drop to help raise money.

“I picked The Archie Foundation as they do really great things for sick children and families.

“I’m a mum myself and know how scary it can be when your child is in hospital but The Archie Foundation do everything they can to support the families and make it as easy an experience for everyone as they can.”

Commenting on the Adrenalin Drop, Sherylanne said: “I was super nervous and was shaking as we got to the top.

“I was the first to jump in my group, everything kind of went out my head and at first I froze and didn’t think I could do it.

“The instructor counted to three and then I just stepped over the edge. It was really scary but I’m so glad I did it.”
