A DUNFERMLINE mum who’s scared of heights says she’ll be “throwing myself out of an aircraft” to raise cash for Shiresmill Therapy Riding Centre.

Lisa Hawkins, who turned 40 last Friday, isn’t a runner either but will don fancy dress and jog over the Forth Road Bridge 10 times – a distance of about 15 miles – for the charity near Blairhall that supports her two kids.

She’ll be jumping out of a plane over Strathallan airfield on August 25 and joked: “If you wish to hear my screams please come along!”

Lisa said she wanted to raise money to help support Shiresmill which provides therapy “for my children and many others alike”.

She explained: “Shiresmill provides therapy riding and related activities to children and people of all ages with physical disabilities, medical conditions, learning difficulties and youngsters on the autistic spectrum.

“The benefits of therapeutic riding are endless and well documented from sources across the globe.

“It is an enjoyable and fun experience which may improve co-ordination, communication, balance, muscle control and posture, all contributing to increased confidence, self esteem and social skills and all because of the horse!

“I would like to ask for donations and in result I will be throwing myself out of an aircraft after which I hope the parachute will open!”

Lisa added: “Prior to this on August 11 I am running 10 times over the Forth Road Bridge which amounts to around 15 miles.

“I will be dressed in fancy dress which will enable me to gallop over the bridge (I hope).

“I would be very appreciative if you could donate what you can afford.”
