DAREDEVIL Alexandra Copley is calling for sponsors to help her raise cash for a tandem skydive in aid of children's charity the NSPCC.
Alex, who lives in Stepney, is jumping out of a plane in Cambridgeshire on Wednesday June 3.
Every year staff at her City based firm picks a charity to support.
This year it was Alex's choice and she picked the NSPCC.
She said: "I think it's a brilliant charity."

Self-confessed adrenalin junkie Alex said: "I love heights. I've done three bungee jumps in New Zealand and black water rafting where you go in a tunnel.
"I'm hoping to raise more than �500 for the charity and people can donate money through www.justgiving.com/alexandracopley."
Her friend Gaynor Burgess, 33, will also be doing a skydive - to raise cash for English Martyrs school in Aldgate.
