Sharon Wing, from Thetford, who has a daughter, took part in a 13,000 feet charity skydive to raise money for TimeNorfolk.

She was joined by Ashlie Cox and Kieran John of Howes Percival Solicitors in Norwich, which is supporting TimeNorfolk.

The Norwich-based charity supports women and men across Norfolk following any kind of pregnancy loss.

Mrs Wing said: “I am fundraising in loving memory of my baby Harry, who was born prematurely in November 2013. Over the past four years I have kept his memory alive through fundraising, and with 2018 being his fifth birthday I have decided to do this extra crazy thing this year to mark the occasion.”
