A MOTHER of two sets of twins has headed for the skies to raise money for charity.
Hayley Sole, from Shingay, jumped 10,000ft from an aeroplane and raised £656 for the Alzheimer's Research Trust.
Hayley, who completed a second jump of 12,000ft just four weeks after her first, said: "I was quite nervous on the first jump and found it really hard to breathe.
"That's why I wanted to do the second jump. The whole experience was much better, as I was so much more relaxed."

She said: "My granddad suffered with the disease and I also wanted to do something different and something that people would sponsor me for doing."

While a contribution of sponsorship money usually goes to the parachuting company, Hayley decided to pay for the jump herself so that the Alzheimer's Research Fund would benefit from all her hard work.
Alzheimer's is a progressive form of dementia affecting around 450,000 people in the UK.
