A BEAUTY queen will be jumping out of a plane at 11,000 feet in aid of a hospital that saved her nephew's life just 10 days after he was born.

Beth Bower, from Deane, will be skydiving for Manchester Children's Hospital in June — a cause close to her heart.

Her nephew Ollie Bower was born in Bolton in 2010 but 10 days later he fell ill and was taken back to Royal Bolton Hospital.

They tried to stabilise him for

Ollie Bower was 10 days old when he fell ill, my mum (Ollies grandma) knew instantly something was not right after the way he looked at her in the eyes. Ollie was taken to Bolton hospital and after several hours of them trying to stabalise him they transferred him to Manchester Children's Hospital in an incubator surrounded by doctors and anaesthetist who worked at Manchester Children's hospital but had to meet him at Bolton hospital to assist Ollies journey in the ambulance. While at Manchester Children's hospital Ollie spent 5 days in intensive days and 4 days in high dependency before being sent back to Bolton hospital where he spent another night before being discharged. After many test Ollie was diagnosed with a viral infection which was so severe his organs began to shut down. Doctors said his chance of survival was very low. However after the fantastic care Ollie made a full recovery.

Ollie is now 7 years old and assist me on all my charity work and fundraising. In the past we have raised over £1,300 for Manchester Children's hospital when he helped me to organise and host a family fun day back when he was just 5 years old as he wanted to say thank you to the doctors who saved his life.

Ollie will be coming along on the day of my skydive to watch and show his support

On the 16th June 2018 I will be doing a sponsored skydive to raise money for Manchester Children's hospital intensive care unit as a thank you to the ward that saved my nephews life when he was only 10 days old. In 2010, Ollie was born a healthy baby but at just 10 days old Ollie contracted a mystery illness that left him so Ill doctors was unsure he would survive, he was transferred from Bolton hospital to Manchester Children's intensive care unit where he fought for another 10 days for his life. Thankfully Ollie is now 7 years old and a very happy and healthy little boy. I have raised money for Manchester Children's hospital intensive care unit in the past, me and Ollie organised a family fun day together in 2016 which raised £1,315. However this is always a cause that I will aim to support in any way I can and I would like to use my miss community Bolton and Bury 2017/2018 award as a platform to support as many fantastic causes in our local area as possible.
