A man with cerebral palsy has jumped out of a plane thousands of feet in the air to raise money for young people with the same condition.

Nikolas Royale from Bala is helping fund the aftercare of a life-changing operation which helps ease the symptoms of cerebral palsy.

The operation known as Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) costs over £40,000 and is not available in Wales.

Many patients have to fly to America for the procedure and then require 5 weeks of post-operation care.

Nikolas has also taken up rock climbing to fuel his extreme sport addiction and to raise awareness of the Support4SDR charity, which provides the aftercare to young people.
