Taking the plunge

The Stroke Association’s Skydive for Stroke will take place on August 28 and is guaranteed to be an exhilarating experience for all who take part.

The charity’s first Scottish skydive event will take place at Errol Airfield in Perthshire and will see thrill-seeking participants complete a tandem skydive from 10,000ft while attached to a professional instructor. They will experience the thrill of a freefall skydive down to 5,000ft, falling through the air at 120mph.

This once-in-a-lifetime challenge will be helping to raise vital funds for the charity to support stroke survivors and their families. The Stroke Association is the only UK-wide charity solely concerned with combating stroke in people of all ages, with all money raised in Scotland being spent to support the charity’s work north of the border.

For more information contact Kirsty Scott on 0131 555 7245 or email skydive@stroke.org.uk. Registration closes on July 8.
