STAFF from two Carmarthen nurseries braved a 12,000ft skydive to raise funds for causes close to their hearts.

Six colleagues from the Pobl Bach Nurseries in Llangunnor and Johnstown jumped out of a plane to raise money for charity.

The group did the jump in aid of cancer charities, as manager Annie Morgans lost her husband, Gary, to chronic myeloid leukaemia in November 1999 when he was just 29 years old.

Annie was joined by Kay Richards, Emma Cooper, Amy Richmond, Annie Morgans and Claire Holt and raised £1,870.17.

The group have donated £600 to Cancer Research Wales and £1,270.17 to the chemotherapy day unit at Glangwili Hospital.

Annie, from Llansawel, said: "Cancer is something that unfortunately touches everyone's lives and we felt that it would be good to support such worthwhile local causes helping to fight cancer.

"Gary was cared for by staff at the day unit at Glangwili Hospital and it is nice to give something back for the fantastic care that he received. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us in raising this fantastic sum of money."

Sister Linda Jones, of the chemotherapy day unit at the Hywel Dda University Health Board, was delighted by the help and said: "We would like to thank the staff of Pobl Bach Nurseries for their generous donation and for acknowledging the work being undertaken by the staff of the chemotherapy day unit.

"Their donation will help us to maintain the best possible environment for care to our patients and their families."
