Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Lucy Horobin 6:30am - 10am
A Midlands mum of 2 is hoping to raise over £1500 pounds for the National Autistic Society (NAS) by doing a skydive.
Roz Guy from Dudley will be jumping out of a plane at 13,000 feet for the charity as her little boy Izak was diagnosed with autism when he was 2 and she wants to give something back to the NAS, who are the UK's leading charity for people with autism.
Roz will be joining the NAS' Falling Angels team who will be going the skydive on Saturday 10th April, shortly after World Autism Awareness Day. The team will be free falling to speeds of 120 mph, covering 1000 feet in 5 seconds before plummeting back down the scenic town of Brackley whilst in the joint control of a parachute.
Roz told Heart,
"My kids have branded us the 'Red Devils' and although I am the only one jumping out of the plane the three of them are the real superstars. They are planning on making me a banner and dressing me in a bright red outfit on the big day, just in case they can't spot me hurtling toward the ground at high speeds! I've always wanted to do something for the NAS as they've been so important to us from the moment my eldest son, Izak was diagnosed with it"
