A Longton cancer survivor braved 130 mph winds during a wing walk for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.Advertisement
Chiropractor Julie raised £1,100 for the charity after travelling to an aerodrome in Cirencester, where a team from AeroSuperBatics strapped her to the top of a vintage biplane.
It took off for a flight over the Cotswolds, reaching 130 mph as it banked and dived.

Julie said: “It was a lovely day. I was pretty nervous in the lead up to my flight. The wind drowned out my screams of both fear and delight, and it hits you so hard, it makes your cheeks vibrate.
“It was a great experience – my tribute to family, friends and patients touched by cancer. Thank you to everyone who supported me.”
Julie is a loyal Rosemere Cancer Foundation fundraiser, raising £325 for the charity in June by swimming half a mile in Lake Windermere.

Earlier in the year, Julie and partner Dave Hird, an IT specialist, live-streamed some of their staycation, which they took on their driveway in their VW campervan Wanda, to raise £1,300.
Julie has run a sponsored half marathon and taken part in three sprint triathlons for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
She said: “I’m always looking for challenges that are different and exciting as a way to say thank you for the work that goes on at Rosemere Cancer Centre, where I received treatment in 2014, and which the foundation helps to fund.”
