Get involved Fundraise Skydive for dementia! SIGN UP today! Experience the thrill of a lifetime with a tandem skydive for Alzheimer's Support on 9th May 2021. Once again we have teamed up with Go Skydive to offer places on a dedicated Alzheimer's Support jump day. If you have always wanted to experience the exhilaration of jumping out of a plane why not join our team and skydive to support people living with dementia here in Wiltshire. I have always been petrified of heights and wouldn’t even step onto a plane let alone jump out of one, but in September 2020 I did the 10,000ft skydive in aid of Alzheimer’s Support. That was the best experience to happen to me so far. Now it's your turn! Olivia Pinkney, who jumped to thank us for supporting her grandfathers Your skydive for dementia The 10,000 ft tandem jump will take place at Old Sarum, near Salisbury. After 30 seconds of freefall, when you'll be travelling through the air at 125mph, the parachute will open and you'll experience amazing views across the Wiltshire landscape as you descend. The day starts with a full training briefing with your personal skydive instructor before getting kitted out and taking off in a Cessna Super Cargomaster. We'll be jumping in two groups, so you'll need to be there for either 8am or 9am. GoSkydive is one of the UK's leading skydive companies, and specialises in first-time tandem skydives. So you know you will be in safe, highly experienced hands. The GoSkydive experience Covid-19 update. The jump day first scheduled for March is now taking place in May. Please book as normal to reserve your space. GoSkydive has updated procedures to ensure everyone can jump safely.
