Twelve daring fundraisers, experienced an amazing adrenaline rush as they took on a tandem skydive form over 10,000ft over Sandown Airport this Summer in aid of Age UK Isle of Wight.

 

The event was kindly supported by Wight Fire & Security, of which two dedicated staff members braved the jump themselves to support this great local cause. The weather was perfect, a clear and sunny day giving spectacular aerial views to all involved!

 

The event raised over an incredible £7,500 for Age UK Isle of Wight, all of which will stay on the Island helping to provide support and companionship to our older Island residents.

Elisha Leachman, Fundraising Manager at Age UKIW, said:

 

“We are extremely grateful to all of the incredible fundraisers who braved this adrenaline filled challenge and we are amazed by the amount raised this year and want to send out a special thank you to everyone involved and that helped to support this day to be a success!”
