Sheffield mum Jenna Randall, whose baby Isabella was born 10 weeks early, has raised more than £1,100 for Sheffield Hospitals Charity with a skydive

Jenna Randall’s baby Isabella was born weighing just 3lb 12oz and spent nearly two months being looked after by staff on the Jessop Wing neonatal intensive care unit.

To thank the nurses, doctors, consultants and support workers, without whose support Jenna says her baby would probably not be here now, she has just completed a skydive, raising more than £1,100 for Sheffield Hospital’s Charity.

Jenna said: “The only way I can describe the jump from start to finish is absolutely amazing. The excitement I felt was something I’d never felt before. The adrenaline pumped through my body and I felt like I was on cloud nine.
