Are you a Halloween scaredy-cat, or a St Clare Hospice Hero?!
It’s Halloween weekend on Saturday 30th October, and to mark the occasion we’re rounding up the bravest and most daring of our loyal Hospice supporters to take on one of the most chilling… blood-pumping… horrifically-frightening feats known to mankind… *cue spooky music*
We’re kidding; it’s actually completely safe – but you will need your wits about you for our exclusive, adrenaline-fulled St Clare Halloween Skydive in fabulous fancy dress! And we’ll even have a face-painter there on the day, to make sure you ‘look the part’ in those mid-flying photos!
For the ultimate scare this Halloween, why not face your fears and take on the ultimate bucket list item? A skydive challenge in aid of your local Hospice charity can help us to raise thousands in vital income.
Ready for the thrill of a lifetime? Here’s how it works…
With a parachute specially designed for two people, you will board an aircraft and soar to around 13,000 feet (approximately two miles high!) Once you exit at up to 13,000 feet, you accelerate to 120 mph, covering each thousand feet in approximately five seconds. At 5,000 feet the Instructor will deploy the parachute which will then be controlled by both persons until you land softly and gently some four minutes later.
If you want to experience every aspect of the sport on your very first jump, a Tandem Skydive is just the thing! Following a short pre-jump briefing, you will enjoy the thrill of free fall and even learn the basics of steering and landing a modern ‘square’ gliding parachute, while securely attached to a highly experienced instructor.
