Skydivers are raising money for a toddler with two serious medical conditions.

Fundraisers from Burnham and South Woodham are preparing to jump from a plan on Saturday for Finley Ranson, three, and charities that have supported him.

He has eosinophilic entrocolitis, a stomach condition that means he can only be fed a special milk via a tube, and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a genetic connective tissue condition.

His mum Rhys Ranson, uncle Ellis Wiseman, from Burnham, and supporters from South Woodham Ferrers including Steve Powell, of Leighlands Road, are among the 11 skydivers.

Money will go towards equipment to meet the toddler’s specific needs, including an electric bed and wheelchair.
