ROLLING his car for charity might see Suffolk stunt demon Shaun Wright needing the help of the very people he is raising money for.
Mr Wright is hoping to raise up to £2,000 for the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service who turn out 24 hours a day to give life saving treatment to accident victims.
The former firefighter decided to do the stunt at Foxhall Stadium because he knows just how much good the volunteer doctors do at the side of the road.
Mr Wright from Finchley Road said: "I used to work right beside them and know exactly how much they do at the end of the day.

"To me they are another number one emergency service."
The rollover will see the 24-year-old driving a car up a ramp and seeing how many times he can roll it.

He has done it three years in a row to raise money for charity and this year hopes to beat his two personal bests.
He said: "Last year I rolled it five times so want to do more than that.
"I also raised £1,500 and this year am hoping to break the barrier of how much I raised before."
Stock car racing is not one of Mr Wright's hobbies, although he did used to take part in Rookie Bangers.
But he is determined that he will carry on every year with rolling a car for charity. This year's stunt is due to take place on April 21 at 2.30pm.
He said: "You need a lot of guts to do it and it is fairly dangerous.
"From the minute I hit the ramp to the minute I stop, it just goes so quickly."
