Two art teachers are set to leap out of a plane to raise money for Ayrshire-based charities. 

Jordan Hume will skydive for The Little Art Stars, which works with schools in South and East Ayrshire to help vulnerable children build their confidence and develop social skills.

Kathleen Dickie will also take the leap for The Dementia Arts Trust, which teaches art to the elderly in local care homes.

Both charities fall under the banner of the Little Art School, an Ayr-based business that has been on the go for ten years.

The art school specialises in home schooling and after-school art classes for those from six-years-old to the elderly.

Jordan says that the pair wanted to raise funds for the two charity arms of the business, which they both work for. 

He explained: "We go around primary schools holding art classes, providing respite time for kids that are in need of a bit of socialising that they maybe can't get at home. 

"We also visit care homes through the Dementia Arts Trust, providing art programmes for residents with the condition.

"Myself and a friend down in England are doing it for The Little Art Stars, and Kathleen will be jumping for The Dementia Arts Trust. 

"Hopefully we can raise a good amount of money for both charities that benefit so many in the community."

Jordan says the fundraising has been a big success so far, with hundreds of pounds raised for both charities. 

He said: "The skydive takes place on August 18 up by Auchterarder, and we're all pretty excited about it. 

"I've skydived a few times before but i don't think Kathleen has so it will be a new experience for her.

"The fundraising has been going great with a lot of support from friends and family. We've run our own fundraisers over the years but this will be the most dramatic we have done. 

"It will all go towards continuing our classes and starting more within schools and care homes in South and East Ayrshire."
