But these five members of Diss auctioneers TW Gaze are preparing to throw themselves from a plane at 13,00ft above Ellough airfield near Beccles to raise

funds for a cause close to their hearts.

Scott Parke, Daniel Woods, Robert Kinsella, Lisa West and Louis Smith will skydive on Sunday, July 10 to raise funds for their company's chosen charity for the year, Allergy UK.

Mr Kinsella's daughter Evie, two, has been supported by Allergy UK after she suffered a severe reaction to a mouthful of yoghurt at six-months-old.

Mr Kinsella, an auctioneer and valuer, said: 'Everyone at TW Gaze has known Evie since she was tiny and the support my colleagues have given to me, my wife Katie and Evie when she has been poorly and in hospital has been priceless.

'Allergy UK has always been there to help us with questions and advice in a time when we didn't know what was happening to our daughter.'

He added: 'The times she has been unwell she still manages to be playful, happy and the bubbly character we love.

'If she can cope with all her allergies surely I can throw myself out of a plane.'
