A FEARLESS singer’s “leap of love” out of a plane has helped raise more than £1,000 for grieving parents.

Sarah Louise Isom, a singer-songwriter from Colchester, bravely completed what she has described as an “exhilarating” skydive in aid of the the stillbirth and neonatal death charity SANDS.

The 41-year-old signed up to the charity skydive, officially called the Leap of Love to try to raise more awareness for parents who have lost a baby.

Earlier this year Sarah shared wrote a song called Fly Free Little One with the help of parents who have been through the tragic experience of the death of a child.

She incorporated the heartfelt words of three grieving parents into the single and hopes the song can help comfort other people who are also mourning.

The single Fly Free Little One is featuring on Sarah’s new album called The Shift, with all the proceeds from the single going to SANDS.

Sarah said she took part in the charity skydive a day before Bereaved Mother’s Day.

She said: “The skydive was exhilarating and I was quite scared about doing it, but the charity I was jumping for made it worth it.”

The singer carried out her 13,000ft skydive at Beccles Airfield, in Suffolk, at about 9am.

“I was the second person to jump that morning,” she added.

“The whole experience took about 15 minutes - my freefall was about a minute long, then we glided to the ground.

“It was so surreal falling out of the plane, it felt like a dream.

“I was attached to a qualified skydiver, so it was a bit like I was sitting in an armchair during the experience.”

Sarah’s jump has raised more than £1,300 so far for SANDS.

She hopes to continue to raise money for SANDS in the future as it has become a charity close to her heart.
