A parachuting pensioner has taken a leap of faith and sky-dived from 13,000ft for charity.
Happy landings - Mrs Murphy completes her jump
Elizabeth Murphy, 72, from the Beacon of Hope Ceredigion Hospice Appeal, hopes to raise more than £10,000.
Mrs Murphy, a grandmother of nine, was strapped to a Paratrooper - a member of the Red Devils' parachute display team.
The charity's patron, Prince Charles' former official harpist Catrin Finch, said she was proud of what Mrs Murphy and fellow fundraisers had achieved.
The senior citizen jumped with seven of her colleagues from the hospice charity at Langer Airfield, Nottingham, on Thursday.
Mrs Murphy, who lives in Borth, near Aberystwyth, said: "I'd be a liar if I said if I said I wasn't scared, but our instructors were professional and put us at ease.
"It was a tremendous feeling and I'm so glad I did it, I got a real confidence boost from doing it.
"I was free-falling for 45 seconds and then over minute gliding down after the parachute was pulled. I even landed on my feet."
Mrs Murphy, the charity's administrator, added: "We hope to raise more than £10,000 from this event."
Ms Finch said the parachute jump highlighted how dedicated Mrs Murphy and others were to the charity.
"They quite literally put their lives at risk and I'm honoured to be involved with them."
The charity, which has offices in Aberystwyth and Cardigan, was founded by retired teacher Mrs Murphy in 2000, who ran its first office from her home in Borth.
Since then the charity has helped around 250 people.
It is run by 20 volunteers and a small team of professionals from Ceredigion.
A midsummer night's gala ball to raise money for the charity will be held in Aberystwyth on 25 June.
