‘Amazing: wow!  Sailing in 3D… don’t think, just do it!’ Christine

‘There is nothing like jumping out of a perfectly good plane from 15,000 feet strapped to a total stranger.’  Cat

Julia’s House, which supports children with life limiting conditions and disabilities, thro its Dorset and Wiltshire hospices, organised a World Record SkyDive event for Saturday, 11 June 2016.  Catherine from Lottery Admin and Christine in HR leapt at the challenge!

The weather held good – cloud above 8,000 ft. ensured that it was truly a leap into the unknown.

Exhilarating freefall from 15,000 ft. at 125 mph to roughly 6,000 ft.  and ‘open-chutes’ with visibility across the Salisbury Plain – Old Sarum, Salisbury Cathedral and beyond.

The LFS team together raised over £800 for the charity – enough to support 60 individual play sessions for children in the charity’s care.
