Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a hospice fundraiser!

Skydiving - Robert Hutton preparing to take the leap

Robert Hutton preparing to take the leap

On Saturday, September 7, the Selly Park-based charity is organising a skydiving day at Hinton airfield in Brackley, where participants can jump for free, as long as they raise a minimum sponsorship of £395.

No experience is necessary as all participants will be attached to a qualified instructor for this experience of a lifetime.

A similar event in March raised more than £6,000 for the Hospice, which supports terminally ill people and their families across Birmingham and Sandwell. The Hospice’s fundraising team is hoping that the September event will prove even more successful.

Spaces are limited and the cut-off date for registrations is July 12. For an information pack call Fundraising on 0121 472 1191 or visit
