Honiton-based Freewheelers to benefit from skydive

PUBLISHED: 15:00 21 March 2015 | UPDATED: 10:08 25 March 2015


A skydiving company is offering people the chance to plunge 15,000ft in a tandem skydive to raise money for Honiton-based charity Devon Freewheelers.

The jump, which can be done for free if those taking part raise £395 each, will take place at Dunkeswell Airfield, on Saturday, June 20.

Gill Day, of Devon Freewheelers, said: “We are really excited about being part of what could be a fantastic achievement by the SkyDive team and all those who have sponsored any charity to throw themselves out of a plane. I take my hat off to them and look forward to watching the event. Good luck to all involved.”

For more information, call Gill on 0300 800 0105 or send an email to gill.day@bloodbikes.org

Those interested can book online via skydiveukltd.com or call 01404 890222.
