The brother and sister of a Cupar teenager who died of cancer five years ago have raised £1120 for the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland by completing a daring 150ft bungee jump at Killiecrankie.

Joanne and Chris Wilson made the jump in memory of 17-year-old Jennifer, who died on March 6, 2010. Jennifer had wanted to spend her final days at Rachel House in Kinross, which is run by CHAS, but she died before her wish could be fulfilled, Joanne said staff had been a great support during what was the darkest week of the family’s life.

“The jump was amazing but terrifying,” said Joanne (18). “We’d like to thank everyone for their donations and support.”
