For the love of Joe, three

THE parents of an autistic boy completed a sponsored skydive in aid of his nursery.

Carl and Laura Bennett, of Church Lane, Shiplake, decided to raise money for sensory toys after three-year-old Joe was diagnosed in November.

The couple and Carl’s father Phil jumped 16,000ft at Middle Wallop airfield in Hampshire.

Mr Bennett, 26, a corporal in the Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers, jumped solo as he is trained while his wife and father jumped in tandem.

Mrs Bennett, 27, said: “The day was made for us, with perfect conditions. The sky was blue with only a few fluffy clouds. It was out of this world.”
