Steph aiming for top.

ACTION girl Steph Budby is not afraid of a challenge.

The Dewsbury volunteer is organising a 165ft bungee jump for the Laura Crane Trust.

Steph, 21, (inset) is also hoping other dare devils will join her in the fundraising attempt which will take place at the Galpharm Stadium on Sunday, September 6. She hopes to raise funds for the youth cancer charity formed in memory of student Laura Crane.

Steph, who is part of the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, said: "As part of this role I motivate and support awardees by encouraging them to put something back into the community.

"What better way to encourage them than to organise a fundraising event where they can take part initially, but may be inspired to organise something similar.

"The Laura Crane Trust helps those suffering from cancers that are of a similar age to myself."

The Big Jump will take place at the Galpharm Stadium on September 6 from midday until 6pm.

Jumpers need to raise a minimum sponsorship of pounds 100 so they can then jump for free and the registration fee is pounds 10.
