If you dare to do something different this year then Frimley Health Charity has just the challenge for you – skydiving!
You choose the skydive venue and jump date that suits you best. There are locations up and down the country through our charity skydive partner with Reading being the closest location to our hospital sites. Your training and skydive are completed in one day. You jump harnessed to a professional parachute instructor, who controls the free fall, parachute opening and landing PLUS, if you raise £395 in sponsorship you won’t have to pay for the cost of the jump!
Leaving the aircraft from up to 13,000ft you’ll reach speeds of 120mph (that’s as fast as a Golden Eagle diving for prey, by the way!) You’ll experience the rush and buzz of freefall strapped to a professional and experienced parachute instructor. Your instructor will release the canopy at about 5000ft and you can either help them steer the parachute home or leave them to do it for you and ‘relax’ as the parachute deploys, and you gently descend back to the cheers of your supporters below.
This is your must do thing for 2021, a once-in-a-lifetime fundraising tandem skydive, where you will also be helping Frimley Health Charity improve patients’ lives and staff wellbeing across our NHS hospitals.
Every year our Charity and community organises a wide variety of events. Whether you are looking to take part in a run or cycling challenge, or maybe a quiz or bowling night, check our events calendar and get involved!
