Skydive October 2018

We had two amazing daredevils take part in an organised tandem skydive to raise much needed funds for The Y. Shelisha and Sheriton not only work for us as part of the theatre team but were also willing to take on this crazy challenge and raise over £1000 between them for The Y.

For lots of people, something like a skydive is a real bucket list challenge but for fundraisers, it’s also a fabulous opportunity to take on your challenge by joining an organised tandem skydive whilst raising valuable funds for a worth cause. Imagine the incredible birds eye view as you descend from around 13000ft and the adrenaline rush of those seconds of free fall at up to 120mph. This is not a challenge for everyone so kudos to thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies.

Our two superstar fundraisers were originally booked in to jump on Saturday the 6th of October. Unfortunately, due to weather conditions, this was postponed until Wednesday 10th of October where this finally happened at Langar Airfield. We cannot thank them enough for taking part, returning after it was rescheduled and raising such an incredible amount of money.

Let’s hear it for Shelisha and Sheriton, our fundraising heroes!
