Make Today Count skydiver Kelly-Marie Stewart is no plane Jane

Muscular Dystrophy Campaign ambassador Kelly-Marie Stewart leapt back in time at the RAF Museum last week, transforming into a cheeky wartime pin-up to promote our Make Today Count campaign.




Former Hollyoaks star Kelly-Marie will be among the 130 thrill-seekers facing a 15,000ft skydive on the first weekend of March. Together they hope to raise £50,000 towards treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Kelly-Marie, who has a neuromuscular condition herself, has also persuaded fellow Liverpool residents - former Hollyoaks star Stuart Manning, Big Brother Series One winner, Craig Phillips, Desperate Scouse Wives' Layla Flaherty and Geordie Shore's Rebecca Walker to join her.

Kelly-Marie said:

"I hope people will join us in our mission to get treatment to children and young people living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Skydiving is on many people's bucket-lists. If you join us on 1 and 2 March you will share the excitement - and the terror - with more than 100 other people.  Keep calm, carry on and get involved!"
