Police officer Liam Palmer is preparing to throw himself out of a plane at 13,000ft to raise money for charity.
The 24-year-old, who is a PCSO based at Bottesford, hopes to raise £750 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) with his sky dive.
He plans to take on the challenge on Thursday June 19 from Sibson Airfield near Peterborough.
Liam said: “It’s starting to hit home now that I’m going to be doing this as we get closer to the date.
“I’m looking forward to it though and I will be doing it for a very good cause.”
Liam chose the charity because he lost a close family friend to motor neurone disease and because Melton police officer Stewart Sparling also suffers from it.
“It’s a charity close to my heart,” he added. To sponsor Liam go to www.justgiving.com/LiamPalmer6016
