A Welshpool mother of three is about to do a skydive from 10,000 feet to raise money for charities which help children with disabilities.

Rhiannon Jones is going to be jumping from the skies from a skydiving centre in Tilstock in North Shropshire and says she’s terrified.

“I’ve never done anything like it in all honestly, I’m terrified of heights,” she said.

Rhiannon won’t be jumping out of the plane alone, she’ll be doing it alongside two local celebrities: radio presenters Lois Cernyw and Rachel Howarth from Heart North Wales.

The fundraiser is organised by Global Radio, which Heart is a part of, and its Make Some Noise charity, which supports small charities across the UK which help youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.

A lot of people applied to join the local radio stars in their charity skydive, but only six were chosen – Rhiannon being one of them.

The fact that the money Rhiannon will raise will go towards helping children with disabilities is a big reason why she decided to apply in the first place. Rhiannon said: “I have three children and luckily they’re fine and well and don’t have any disabilities.

“But my nephew has cerebral palsy, and if I had a child with a disability, I’d like there to be a charity which could help. It’s hard enough bringing up kids in the first place.”
