A mum-of-three is getting ready to make the brave leap out of a plane to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Samantha Slaney, 29, from Kirk Hallam , will be doing the tandem dive in October and wants to give something back after receiving a start-up loan from The Prince’s Trust for her business Once Upon A Time Fairytale Weddings and Events.

She said: “If it wasn’t for this amazing charity, I wouldn’t have been able to follow my dreams. I now want to fund raise for GOSH, to enable children to get the treatment they need to thrive and plan their own fairytale - every child deserves a happy ever after.”
