Adventurous gran to jump from plane in memory of grandson
Lynne Taylor with her daughter Sam

A fearless grandmother will leap 10,000ft from a plane to raise cash for a children's hospice in memory of her grandson.

Lynne Taylor is hoping to raise more than £1,000 for Helen & Douglas House - that cared for Harry - who died weeks before his second birthday in January 2002.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of when the little boy died from a rare brain tumour and the Albert Street resident will jump on June 24 in Banbury.

The grandmother-of-five said: "He smiled all the time and was a fantastic little boy and Harry is still with me in my heart and he was a very special boy."

"It was devastating for the family when he died and I do not know how my daughter Sam coped. The hospice gave him fantastic care."

The former Dubai World Service newscaster would not reveal her age - only saying she has collected her pension for quite a few years.

"I am really looking forward to it and quite excited," added the mother-of-two.
