Wing Walking Granny

Many of us have friends and family who want to help, but don't know how. We tell our mothers and sisters and husbands and friends to stick by us, and maybe understand us, and, oh yes, to help us raise funds.

Well, here's one woman who found a way. Isobel, a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother has already raised £40,000 selling jams and crafts, but now she is trying something a little different.

In June, she will be part of the show at the Emmerdale Extravaganza -- as a wing walker!

Isobel, whose daughter is an MSer, will celebrate her 80th birthday. About a week later, she will be standing on top of the wings of a small aircraft as it soars above the crowd.

You can attend the event in Aberdeen, Scotland, donate by visiting the website, or you can take that extra step and volunteer to walk the wings yourself! Good luck.
