TWO parents are preparing for a charity parachute jump in a bid to reach new heights in fundraising for Scarborough Hospital’s special care baby unit.

TWO parents are preparing for a charity parachute jump in a bid to reach new heights in fundraising for Scarborough Hospital’s special care baby unit.

Mark and Kirstie Norton, from Pickering, are taking on the challenge after their twins Ciara and Samuel were cared for in the unit after being born six weeks early in 2009.

Since then the family have raised considerable funds for the unit amounting to around £4200 through two yearly charity music nights featuring local bands, including Mr Norton’s own, Rocketsmith.

However this summer to celebrate the twins’ third birthday, Mr and Mrs Norton will be taking a 10,000 foot drop from the skies above Bridlington.

Hoping to break last year’s total of £2000, the couple are asking for  sponsorship from friends, family and members of the community.
