A group of four dedicated daredevils summoned their courage to take on the ultimate challenge; a 10,000ft tandem skydives to raise funds for leading disability charity Enham Trust.

Working in conjunction with local skydiving specialists GoSkydive in Old Sarum, Salisbury; the jump took place on Saturday 2nd June. The group raised an amazing combined total of £2303.77! The group consisted of individuals from Enham Trust and Trust In Soda, a digital recruitment agency based in London, who have kindly chosen Enham Trust as their Charity of the Year.

Simon Strong, one of our skydivers said of the experience;

"I did my first freefall jump over 20 years ago, and having a disability, I never thought I would have the chance again. With Enham Trust, I had the chance to experience the terror(!) of jumping again, and the chance to raise £580 for an amazingly worthwhile charity."

Chloe Plummer, Income Generation Administrator, who oversaw the day, commented;

“The skydivers had great weather for the jump and they all thoroughly enjoyed the day. We are so pleased that everyone collectively raised over £2000. This amazing amount will contribute to the vital work that Enham Trust does, so a huge thank you and well done to the whole group.”
