A daredevil pensioner from Eaglesfield in Dumfries and Galloway has raised more than £1,300 by doing a sponsored skydive - just one day after her 90th birthday.

Fearless Margaret Waugh, 90, has already completed a sponsored zip wire.

This year she wanted to raise the stakes and donate the money to Alzheimers Scotland, because she's seen how the disease affects some of her friends.

It was her instructor who put her at ease, talking her through the process at every stage.

Now with her feet firmly back on the ground, she's talking about her experience in the hope of raising money for charity.

Next year Margaret wants to get back up in the air and complete a wing walk.

With her daredevil attitude, she knows doing frightful tasks like these is helping those who really need it.
