Rachel Wilkinson

My name is Rachel Wilkinson and I'm currently the President of the Across the Plain WI based in Wiltshire. This year we're raising funds to support our local Alzheimer's Support charity and have decided to do something extraordinary to help support people living with dementia.

On behalf of our WI, I've volunteered to be part of the 30th Anniversary Skydive Challenge and jump out of an aeroplane at 10,000ft to raise much needed funds for Alzheimer's Support in Wiltshire. So, if you thought that the WI was all "Jam and Jerusalem" - think again!

The tandem jump will take place at Old Sarum, near Salisbury on 12th September 2020 (weather and COVID-19) permitting. I've been told that after 30 seconds freefall at 125mph, the parachute will open and I'll get to experience amazing views across the Wiltshire landscape as I descend. I can't wait!

But, I can't do it without your help. Please help me to help Alzheimer's Support improve the quality of life for families affected by dementia in Wiltshire. All you need to do is give a small donation to show your support. Thank you! Love, Rachel xx
