A SUPPORT worker from Milford Haven is flying high after completing a tandem skydive in Swansea.

Anna Phillips, 34, works at Portfield social activity centre, which supports hundreds of adults with learning difficulties and challenging behaviour.

She decided to tackle the skydive challenge to raise money for new iPads for the centre's customers.

After raising more than £400 herself, she was given a cheque for £175 from Milford Haven Round Table for cost of skydive, and completed the dive on Sunday, July 13.

"I was very nervous because I didn’t know what to expect," said Anna. "But the guy I was strapped to had done thousands of jumps before so that was really reassuring."

The new iPadswill help day centre users learn how to use money and go 'virtual shopping', as well as range of other skills vital for them to maintain an independent lifestyle.
