A WHEELCHAIR-bound spina bifida sufferer will throw himself out of a plane from 10,000ft.
Selfless Ian Powell, 23, of Marlston Cottages, Greenacre Road, Lache will perform the leap of faith on April 25 to raise money for the Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre, a charity for children with cerebal palsy in Cardiff.
His condition is a development birth defect which left him with an incomplete spinal cord causing it to protrude.
He said: “I’m getting more nervous as it gets closer.”
Ian has refused to let his disability stand in the way of accomplishing such feats and has done abseiling in the past.
Anyone wishing to sponsor him can contact Ian by emailing email@example.com.
