Rowans Hospice Charity: Make an Epic Leap 2021

Posted: 10th May 2021

 

The Rowans Hospice Charity is looking for thrill-seeking daredevils to make an epic and adrenaline-fuelled 13,000ft tandem skydive!

 

The Skydive, which takes place at Netheravon Airfield near Salisbury, is a truly breath-taking 2.5-mile parachute jump in tandem with an instructor. Imagine flying at 13,000ft full of anticipation, sitting at the edge of an open doorway, the engines rumbling and the wind whistling through your ears. Simply let go and fly. Experience the 45-second freefall reaching 120mph, then, as your parachute opens, float back down over the stunning Salisbury landscape to the dropzone, absolutely glowing with adrenaline.

Kev Bradshaw, Creative Learning Specialist at HSDC South Downs College, took on the challenge in late 2019. Describing the experience Kev said, “It was a phenomenal feeling. You feel like you are falling only for a moment, before enjoying the sensation of floating. Then when the parachute canopy opens it feels like you are flying. It really was the most amazing experience, I will definitely repeat it.”

Commenting further, Kev added, “The Skydive for the Rowans Hospice Charity gave me the most memorable experience, whilst also raising vital money to make sure another family like mine will have support from this incredible Charity.”

We can’t wait to hear from other local heroes like Kev, willing to take on this epic challenge in 2021 to support the running of the Hospice. If you have been looking for an adrenaline-fuelled challenge or perhaps want to do something different to celebrate a milestone birthday this year, make that epic leap and register your interest today online or give us a call on 023 9225 0001.

Dates: 23 May, 25 July, 26 September 2021
