Biggest-ever bridge bounce will see people cross Humber on space hoppers
A RECORD number of people are expected to bounce across the Humber Bridge on space hoppers to raise funds for an initiative that is bringing families back together again.
For regional YMCA worker Jenny Hodson the "sky's the limit" when it comes to fundraising – that's why she's decided to organise the biggest-ever bounce across the landmark in aid of Community Games.
The plucky 53-year-old recently skydived out of a plane for the programme, and despite having her feet firmly on the ground, she doesn't plan on keeping them that way for long.
The mum-of-one said she feels so passionately about the positive effect Community Games, which is backed by the Cabinet Office, has had on families and communities, she wants to ensure the initiative reaches as many people in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Humber as possible.

She said: "I never imagined when I first started organising Community Games that they would be such a success.
"Each and every event we have run has been unique in its own way.
"Community Games is so much more than just a day out. These events are bringing families, friends and communities back together again in a way that – up until now – has been somewhat forgotten in this country.
"Instead of communicating through text messages or e-mails, communities are able to re-engage with each other the old-fashioned way. In a world dominated by technology, this is really refreshing to see."
Jenny plans on holding the Humber hop on June 1 next year. To register, phone 0121 710 4482.
