Cancer survivor Julie Kline is to travel to Cirencester on 19 August to undertake a sponsored wing walk to raise funds for Rosemere.Advertisement
She will be strapped to the top of a vintage biplane for a 10 minute flight over the Cotswolds countryside.
During the time she is airborne, the plane will bank steeply and dive as it reaches a top speed of 130mph.
Julie, raised £325 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation in June by swimming half a mile in Lake Windermere with friend and fellow cancer survivor Shirley Horn, of Blackpool, as a participant in the Great North Swim.

She said: “So last year, my partner Dave Hird and I streamed a staycation we took on our drive in our VW campervan Wanda.
“We did lots of daft things and raised £1,300 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation by inviting family and friends to join us virtually as it was during lockdown.
“I had already run a sponsored half marathon and taken part in three sprint triathlons for the charity so with land and water ticked off, I just had to find an air challenge and wing walking seemed a good choice. I only hope it doesn’t rain!”
