Take a leap of faith for hospice

A skydive event has been organised by St Richard’s Hospice and is offering the chance to take an adrenaline filled plunge to raise money for the charity and enjoy a great personal experience.

The skydive will take place at Hinton Airfield, Brackley in Northamptonshire on Father’s Day, Sunday 19th June and is a great way to raise funds to help the hospice continue to care for patients with life-limiting illnesses and support their loved ones.

The St Richard’s group jump day offers participants the experience of an adrenaline filled tandem dive from 10,000 feet up in the air, free-falling at 120mph with beautiful surrounding views before being expertly landed on the drop zone in front of your friends and family. On the day of the jump participants will receive full training and will be harnessed to a professional and experienced parachute instructor.

Jodi Brandwood, Challenges and Events Fundraiser, said: “We are so excited to be able to offer this annual event. It’s a fantastic personal experience and very popular with thrill-seekers. The event is also taking place on Father’s Day, and so offers an ideal opportunity for people to take part in a fun activity with their father, or in memory of their father or grandfather.”

Registration fee is £70 and if you are able to raise the minimum amount of sponsorship, St Richard’s Hospice will pay for your jump costs for you. Full fundraising support is available to help participants maximise sponsorship for their challenge.
