Leap4Love 2018

We are looking for people to join our team and make a sponsored 10,000 feet free-fall parachute jump for a great cause! It takes place September 8th 2018 at GoSkyDive in Salisbury.

Alex Burch, Community Fundraising Manager said, "I remember my first jump, the nerves on the way up were easily surpassed by the almost indescribable sense of exhilaration on the jump itself. The opportunity to feel what it is to fly is not to be missed!" 

Understandably you might be feeling a little apprehensive, as 10,000 feet free-fall parachute jumps aren’t an everyday occurrence! However rest assured you are in very safe hands with the GoSkyDive team, they are the UK’s specialist for first timers, with all training sessions British Parachute Association approved.

It promises to be a fantastic day with great views of the south coast to be had at up to 125mph - and you can even attach go pro style camera’s to capture all the action.

If you’re ready to take the leap visit St Wilfrid’s GoSkyDive charity page at www.goskydive.com/st-wilfrids-hospice to sign up and pay your deposit. Alternatively contact the St Wilfrid’s Hospice fundraising office on 01243 755199 to find out more.

There is a £50 registration fee to secure your spot in the team and St Wilfrid's ask that you raise £395 in sponsorship money. Reaching this target will mean that the hospice receives a minimum donation of £220 and you get to jump for free! Every extra pound that you raise over the minimum comes straight to the Hospice, so please try to raise as much as you possibly can!

The GoSkyDive site offers a comprehensive overview about what happens on the day, so please go online to their website to discover what the day involves and check out their Pre Skydive check list.  

Your 10,000 feet freefall parachute jump takes courage. You deserve to get sponsored for your Leap4Love and every penny that you raise counts!
