Book news A CHILDREN'S bookseller [...].

Book news A CHILDREN'S bookseller is taking the plunge to help poorly kids this weekend.

Rachel Henigan, right, who works at the Middlesbrough branch of Waterstones at Captain Cook Store, will be bungee jumping off the Transporter Bridge on Sunday.

The 28-year-old is taking the challenge to raise much-needed funds for Butterwick Children's Hospice in Stockton.

"I'm a bit nervous but I'm really looking forward to it," says Rachel, from Pallister Park in Middlesbrough.

"Bungee jumping is on my to-do list of things to do before I'm 30 so it'll be another one ticked off."

Up to now Rachel has raised more than pounds 100 for the worthy cause. Anyone who would like to sponsor the jump can leave donations in the Middlesbrough branch of Waterstones.

? DON'T miss Will Nett signing copies of his book, My Only Boro, in Waterstones, Captain Cook Square, Middlesbrough, tomorrow from 10am to noon.
