Shelagh Reid, 59, of Drumoak, will carry out a tandem skydive this Sunday at Errol in Perthshire for charity Charlie House.

Charlie House supports babies, children and young people with complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions in the North-east of Scotland.

The self-employed violin teacher will take the leap of faith with friend Denys Wheatley, 78, from Inverurie. Having overcome her own medical battles, Shelagh is a cancer survivor who had a total gastrectomy in 2010, she has already hit her target of £1,000 through her brave efforts.

Shelagh says, “In the past I have raised over £35,000 for cancer charities who supported me during my cancer journey. I now want to turn my efforts to families and children who require support and assistance due to their complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions. I am turning 60 this year and it seemed the perfect time to try something adventurous! I am delighted to be supporting Charlie House whose services are much needed for these families.’

Shelagh continues, “Having had a total gastrectomy in 2010, which is full removal of the stomach, I’m looking forward to having no lurching feeling when I jump out of the plane, or so I hope! I feel so very fortunate to have this opportunity and wanted to ensure that others benefit.”
