9th March 2024 or 7th September 2024
We're once again teaming up with GoSkydive in Salisbury to offer our supporters the incredible experience of a tandem skydive. There is no experience like it… Everyone should do a skydive at least once and perhaps this is your opportunity. Before taking to the skies, Go Skydive explain the importance of safety, what to expect and teach you how to do the perfect landing!

There is nothing like the exhilaration of hitting a freefall speed of 125mph before pulling the parachute and floating slowly down with only the wind in your ears. It is something you’ll never forget. Are you brave enough to join us?

To sign up on the Go Skydive website click 'find out more'. Book your place by entering 'YMCA DownsLink Group' as your selected charity.

Registration free: £50
Sponsorship minimum: £395
Difficulty: Actually much easier than you think!
