Age UK Isle of Wight is looking for adventurous fundraisers to take on the incredible challenge of a sponsored tandem skydive from over 12,000ft! 

The jump, taking off from Sandown Airport on Tuesday 9th August, will offer each jumper an unrivalled aerial view of the Isle of Wight.

Every skydiver will experience freefall adrenaline at speeds approaching 120 miles per hour, followed by a stunning canopy ride back down to earth.

Elisha Leachman, Fundraising Manager, has said:

“This year we have teamed up with Wight Fire & Security to support brave jumpers who want to tick something off their bucket list whilst helping out a great local charity!

“Age UK Isle of Wight is an independent charity, 100% of all fundraising support we receive stays on the Island to support older people to live well independently”

Interested? Brave fundraisers can secure their seat in the plane today with an £80 payment and a commitment to fundraise a minimum sponsorship of £400 for Age UKIW. Each skydiver is provided with a fundraising pack with support along the way to help reach the fundraising goal.
