Islanders with a thirst for adrenaline are being sought to take on the challenge of a sponsored tandem skydive in support of an Isle of Wight charity.

Age UK Isle of Wight are looking for adventurous fundraisers to take on the skydive, which will see them descend from over 12,000ft. The jump, going from Sandown Airport on 3rd August, will offer each jumper an unrivalled aerial view of the Isle of Wight.

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

Elisha Leachman, Fundraising Manager, said:

“This year we have teamed up with Hose Rhodes Dickson 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 fundraisers can secure their seat in the plane today with an £80 payment and a commitment to reach a minimum sponsorship of £400 for Age UKIW. For those that fundraise £500+ your £80 payment will be returned.
