DAREDEVILS from South Ayrshire are encouraged to take part in a charity skydive for the Scottish Huntington's Association.

Anyone who has ever fancied free falling from 10,000 feet can now realise their dream and raise some much needed cash for a good cause.

The charity is the only one in the country that supports families impacted by the degenerative neurological condition Huntington's disease (HD) and is looking for people willing to take the plunge to help raise funds.

SHA community fundraiser, Linda Winters said: "This is a great opportunity to experience one of the ultimate adrenalin rushes.

"What could be better than hurtling through the sky at 120 mph with the added advantage of raising our profile and lots of money to help fund our work."

It is estimated there are around 1100 people living with HD in Scotland and up to 6000 potentially at risk.

The sky dive takes place at Fife Airport, Glenrothes on June 23.

SHA is asking skydivers to commit to raising a minimum of £499. Please contact Linda to register on 0141 848 0308 or email linda.winters@hdscotland.org
