When it comes to raising money for a good cause, Clare Robinson likes to lead by example.

That’s why the community fundraising manager at St Luke’s Hospice is about to leap, swim and run her way through the next 12 months.

And she is hoping her extreme sporting efforts will raise at least £1,500 for Sheffield’s only hospice.

“I started working at St Luke’s last July and it didn’t take me long to realise what an incredibly special place it is,” said 27-year-old Clare, of Norfolk Park.

“I have the most incredible job and get to meet some incredible people doing incredible things to support St Luke’s so this year I thought I’d join them!”

Clare’s triple challenge begins on May 10 when she will be falling through the clouds as part of a team of ten St Luke’s sky divers.

On June 13 she will swim one mile across Lake Windermere in the Lake District and on September 27 she competes in the Great Yorkshire Run.

Claire said she is getting up at 5.30am to fit in all her training.
