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.
