Daventry Express reporter Gemma Ellis will be facing one of her biggest fears when she does a skydive for The Jago Worrall Foundation.

She will be jumping 10,000 feet on Monday, August 26 in a bid to raise further funds for the foundation to help the toddler from Welton.

Gemma said: “I am really very nervous about this challenge.

“I hate flying so throwing myself out a plane is going to take a really big effort, but I am happy to do it.

“Jago’s story has touched the hearts of everyone in the newsroom and we all want to do our bit to help the family.”
