A devoted mum will throw herself out of a plane at over 12,000ft to raise cash for a charity which has helped her son Archie.

Patsy Beverley, 32, of Cleveland Avenue, Siddal, has signed up to do a sky dive on Sunday October 14 for SWAN UK - Syndromes Without a Name.

Her son Archie, five, has global development delay with complex learning difficulties.

SWAN UK is run by the charity Genetic Alliance UK and offers support for families with children who have conditions which do not have a name.

She hopes to raise £1,000 for the cause - which pays for families to meet up and have days out - and needs at least £530 to do the jump.

“I’ve always wanted to do something like this. I’m a bit of a thrill seeker - I like rides and all that. As I’m getting older, I’m getting more scared, so I thought I’d do it before I’m too old.”

She added: “Archie is doing really well. He’s at Woodbank School and is continuing to develop his skills.

“The support we’ve had from SWAN UK is unbelievable.

“They bring familes together who are isolated with conditions which are undiagnosed. But they need the funds to continue to do that. Please help me reach my target.”
