Imagine freefalling back to earth with the wind in your hair as you experience true freedom. Then imagine what your friends and family will think when they learn you’re doing it for charity. Not only are you raising money for local animals in need – you’re also experiencing the gift of flight.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience will take part at Salisbury airfield on Saturday 11th March and you will free fall from 10,000 feet at a speed of 120 mph. You will be harnessed to a professional parachute instructor as you take on this dare-devil challenge.

Sign up today by registering for £70 and commit to raising the £395 minimum fundraising target. Or why not purchase a skydive as a unique birthday gift they will never forget!
