No, this isn't the start of a campaign to get Brian Laws sacked as Wednesday boss, although if you think the article title was misleading, take it out on forum member 'nicnac'!
Our very own Lawsy will be doing a parachute jump this summer which will raise funds for Sheffield Children's Hospital, a charity close to the Owls' manager's heart.
Brian has set his target at £5,000 to raise for the charity, and has already raised over £1,500 at the time of writing, and he needs our help to achieve his set target and rase some much-needed money for a worthy cause.
Brian tells the story of why he's doing the jump for Sheffield Children's Hospital on his 'Justgiving' website.
'Through the course of my job I have had the pleasure of coming into contact with the numerous brave young children who for varying reasons have to spend time in hospital.
'One of those children is Daniel Grice, who has had a really hard time with leukemia. Daniel is a big fan of Scunthorpe United, where I was manager until moving to Sheffield Wednesday in 2006.
'I have visited Daniel at Sheffield Children's Hospital a few times and he was able to return home for Christmas in Scunthorpe. It was good to be able to see Daniel at home over the festive period and, having got to know each other better, he challenged me to do a parachute jump for the Children's Hospital.
'Sheffield Children's Hospital do a wonderful job in providing the much needed, sometimes life saving health care to countless children so I agreed to take up his challenge. With your help I would like to raise as much money as possible to allow this worthy charity to continue their unfaltering care work.'
Brian will be doing his jump on Wednesday, July 9, at Hibaldstow Airfield near Brigg in Lincolnshire.
