Tick something off your bucket list whilst helping your local Island charity Age UK Isle of Wight!

Age UK Isle of Wight (Age UKIW) are calling for adventurous fundraisers to take on the incredible challenge of a sponsored tandem skydive!

View the Island like never before…. From over 12,000 feet!

Where and when
The jump, going from Sandown Airport on Thursday 19th July, will offer each jumper an unrivalled aerial view of the Isle of Wight.

Each skydiver will experience up to 45 seconds of freefall adrenaline, at speeds approaching 120 miles per hour, followed by a four to five minute canopy ride back down to earth.

Over £7,000 raised in 2017
Elisha Leachman, Age UKIW’s Fundraising Manager, said:

“Last year our amazing skydivers raised over £7,000 to support local older people, and we’d love to beat that target this year.

“As an independent charity all the support we receive stays on the Island to support older people within our communities to live happier, healthier and connected lives.”

Sign up now
Interested fundraisers can secure their seat in the plane today with an £80 deposit and a commitment to reach a minimum sponsorship / fundraising target of £400 for Age UKIW.

Better still, just pass your collected donations straight to the charity and avoid the spend on costs that will not benefit them. If the skydive operator can be persuaded to donate his avoided costs as well, everyone wins!


Maybe do away with walk the wight save all that admin and bus cost etc.The Great south run and every other charitable event and just give. I thought I was the most cynical person on here, eletrickcy you have stolen my crown.
