A husband and wife are getting ready to jump out of a plane at 10,000ft as they join a campaign aiming to raise £10,000 for a children’s charity.

Niyutee and Rakesh Khetani, from Stanmore, are part of a team collecting funds for The Children’s Trust, which supports children with brain injuries.

They were inspired to take on the skydiving challenge by their three-year-old son, Kai, who suffered a serious brain injury after being involved in a car accident when he was two.

He spent eight months at The Children’s Trust where he underwent intensive rehabilitation in order to re-learn how to move and communicate.

Niyutee said: “The Children’s Trust will always have a special place in our hearts. It was our home for eight months and being able to stay onsite with Kai during that time made such a difference.

“It not only allowed me to be involved in his rehabilitation but it gave me the chance to sit around the dining table, sharing experiences with other parents who understood what we were going through.

“We want to raise as much money for the charity as is possible and to show Kai that we can be brave like he has had to be over the last year. He is our superhero.”

The skydive, which takes place on September 23, is part of The Children’s Trust #MyBrave campaign, which encourages people to do something courageous to help raise money for the charity.
