A rainbow filled the sky as a Maidenhead childminder jumped from a plane to raise cash for a cause set up in memory of a school friend.
Lucy Phillips, of the Binghams, braved a skydive from 12,000ft on Sunday last week to raise money for Rosie's Rainbow Fund, a charity set up in memory of her school friend Rosie Mayling.
Lucy said she saw a rainbow during the skydive and she believes the rainbow was more than a coincidence and may have been Rosie wishing her luck.
She said: "I like to think it was Rosie wishing me luck and saying thank you.
"It made the day really special."
The 21-year-old, who celebrated her birthday on the same day, has raised £573 for the Maidenhead-based charity which supports bereaved families.
