Selina Shaw and Sam Welborn are hoping to raise £1,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association by taking part in a tandem skydive.

They will attempt a skydive from 10,000 feet at Bridlington Airfield , Grindale, on Saturday 12 August.

Selina and Sam are raising money for the MND Association because Selina sadly lost her dad, Victor Shaw, a man born and bred in Huddersfield to MND, after fighting a brave battle for five years.

Selina said: “I won’t lie, I am feeling nervous about the actual skydive, but I am also really excited to be able to raise some crucial funds for the association.

“I cared for my dad in his later stage of life, and saw firsthand how devastating the disease is. Therefore, I feel it is really important to raise money, but also to raise awareness, because there are many families out there that need the support.”
