Funds are starting to pour in for Lympstone super mum Bev Roverts, who will sky dive to raise funds for Battens disease research. Bev’s daughter, six, has the terminal disease.

The fundraising efforts of a Lympstone super mum have begun to soar in her bid to raise funds and awareness of the ‘cruel’ disease slowly robbing her of her daughter.

Beverley Roberts is so inspired by her terminally-ill daughter’s strength and courage she will plunge thousands of feet from an aeroplane during her first ever flight, to help others suffering from Batten disease.

Mum-of-three Beverley, 38, who has drawn on daughter Amelia Rose’s zest for life, will, on March 18, – the youngster’s birthday - tandem skydive from an aeroplane to raise funds for research, while highlighting the disease.

Beverley has already raised £500 from her on-line justgiving page and hopes others inspired by her daughter’s courage will sponsor her aerial efforts.

Doctors recently told single mum Beverley six-year-old Amelia Rose, of Gibraltar Road, has a life expectancy of just 12, after she was recently diagnosed with the rare and fatal degenerative and neurological disease.
