A CAFE owner will be swapping his seafront cabin for one in a plane when he does a skydive for charity.

Paul Waterhouse, who owns Ruth’s Cabin on Marine Road East, will freefall from 14,000 feet strapped to an instructor to raise cash for The Christie hospital in Manchester.

He has been inspired to raise the money for The Christie cancer care centre because his niece Charlotte Bright has undergone years of treatment for cancer since she was first diagnosed with the disease in 2005.

Paul, 39, from Bare, said: “I am paying for myself to do a skydive for the young oncology unit at Christie’s and all the money raised will go there.

“I am doing the jump at the Black Knights Parachute Centre at Cockerham.”
