Genesis Trust Skydive – Saturday 7 September

Have an exhilarating experience, conquer your fear and support people in need in your community. Register your interest by filling in our online form HERE. Our next skydive is 7 September. All we ask is that you pay the £50 deposit when you register for the skydive and then fundraise for us with a goal to raise at least £500. We will pay for the rest of the skydive through your fundraising.

You will jump attached to a professional (tandem skydive) at Go Skydive in Salisbury. Many of the professionals have jumped over 20,000 times and so it’s obviously safe.  All you need to do is be courageous and overcome your fear of heights. Register your interest HERE.
