Brave souls take the leap for Launchpad

19 September 2019

A team of brave souls took the leap to freefall from 10,000ft in August and September and raised a huge £5,853 for Launchpad.

A total of 14 people joined us for the ultimate adrenaline rush on 24 August and 7 September at Old Sarum Park in Salisbury, Wiltshire – and the jumpers included a Launchpad trustee and member of staff (Floating Support Officer, Hayley, pictured above in the middle and seen in this video!), and the founder of corporate supporter, Ecrebo.

On the day, the apprehensive groups got specialist training from an experience tandem master, before being securely attached to their instructor and boarding the flight to their jump altitude. They then free-fell at 125mph for 30 seconds!

A huge thank you to everyone who courageously took part and raised vital funds for Launchpad.
