A SELFLESS mum has thrown herself out of a plane in a bid to grant the wishes of seriously ill children.

Catherine Judd, of Howard Avenue, Dovercourt, completed the skydive at Beccles Airfield to raise money for the Make A Wish charity.

Make A Wish grants the wishes of three to 17 year olds who are fighting life threatening illnesses.

Catherine said: “For many families this could be the last happy memory they have of their child having fun rather than memories of days and weeks of painful treatments."
