THE sky will be the limit as one Bognor Regis woman takes a leap of faith in memory of her husband.

Caz Anderson is set to put her nerves to the ultimate test as she takes to the blue skies of Salisbury for a skydive.

Her bold fundraising event is in memory of her husband Scott, who died suddenly of an inoperable brain tumour in June, 2012, at the age of 39.

At the time, their son Jake was ten and daughter Kallie was five.

After deciding to mark the anniversary of Scott’s death each year with a fun event Caz’s jump, on June 7, will raise funds for Winston’s Wish.

“I was dreading the date creeping up again, but this has totally turned around how I feel about the day. We want to remember Scott’s love of life – he would hate for us all to spend the day in tears.”

The pair met the month between their 18th birthdays, got engaged at 21, married at 22 and became parents at 28.

“The hardest thing I will ever have to do in my life was to tell the children their daddy wasn’t coming home.

“Our hearts broke that day and our world collapsed. He was my rock. We miss him so much.”

After initially aiming to raise £500 in five weeks, an overwhelming response meant Caz hit her mark within two days. Her new target is to raise £1,000.

She said: “I want to show my children that life is for living and I know 100 per cent Scott would be proud of me for doing this.

“That’s all I want to do – to make him proud, to remember him smiling and to prove to us all that the sky is the limit.”

Winston’s Wish is the leading childhood bereavement charity in the UK.

“Winston’s Wish became part of our lives and has constantly been there for us on this nightmare journey.

“It is such a comfort for me to know they are on the end of the phone if one of us is having a wobble. Winston’s Wish gave me hope when I had none left and that is why I am raising money for them – to give something back.”
