A NEWTOWNABBEY man who suffers from cerebral palsy will be taking a jump for charity soon with a monster skydive.

Tim Haddock is taking part in the ‘Moonjumper’ on Wednesday, November 16 to raise funds for the Northern Ireland International Children’s Charity Appeal (NIICCA).

The 34-year-old who is a volunteer in the charity’s Glengormley shop, Second Time Round, claims the challenge ahead doesn’t faze him.

“The charity does some fantastic work and when I was asked to take part I just said yes right away,” Tim told the Times.

“Once the doctors said there was no problem doing it, I was ready.

“I will be doing a tandem jump because of my condition, but it won’t annoy me.

“I once abseiled a 150ft cliff, so this shouldn’t be much more difficult than that.”

To donate to this worthy cause search for NIICCA on www.justgiving.com or call into Second Time Round on the Antrim Road in Glengormley.
