Weston Hospicecare is looking for people to take part in its Santa Skydive.


Weston Hospicecare is giving people the chance to tick a challenge off their bucket list by jumping out of an aeroplane.

The Uphill-based charity is holding a Santa Skydive on November 18 at Dunkerswell airfield, where daring fundraisers can enjoy a tandem jump from 15,000ft.

Zoe Barker and her dad Steve have signed up for the challenge in memory of Zoe’s mum who was cared for by the charity. Zoe said: “Weston Hospicecare are amazing, kind and brilliant at caring for people and families at such emotional, hard times in life. By making mum feel so comfortable and settled for her last weeks and days, the hospice made me feel so much better, too. I just want to do as much as I can to make her proud, and raising money for the hospice will definitely be something that does that.”

To take part in the skydive call 01934 423900 or email before October 7.
