Charity takes volunteers to new heights

The national charity Lady Hoare Trust has begun a fundraising appeal to recruit volunteers in the UK to take part in a parachute jump.

Lady Hoare Trust&#39s events coordinator Fiona Head says: “Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway of an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet. Now imagine leaning forward and letting go and falling through the clouds. The peace and tranquillity you&#39ll experience when your parachute opens, as you gently float down to your drop zone is truly awesome.”

No previous experience is required, as volunteers will be trained on the weekend of their jump. Jumps take place every weekend throughout the year at approved British Parachute Centres across the country. To qualify participants will need to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship.

The recruitment for volunteers starts now. Either call 020 7820 9989 or email or visit to receive a free information pack.
