A brave grandfather jumped 10,000 feet out of a plane in honour of his sick grandson who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis.

Terence Dardis faced his fear of heights to raise money for young people in Ireland who are living with the disease.

So far, he has managed to raise close to €4,500 for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland.

Terence's three year old grandson Alfie was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis shortly after he was born, and is the inspiration for his grandfather's daring 10,000 foot-dive.

Alfie's family have set up a Facebook page, where his friends and family undertake various activities in support of Alfie and the many other young CF sufferers in Ireland.
