Calling all adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers! Take the plunge and raise funds for blind and partially sighted people.

Harnessed to a professional parachute instructor, you will free fall for several thousand feet before deploying the parachute. You will spend the day with a professional trainer, preparing until you are ready to take the leap.

This jump is also much less demanding than the traditional static line jump as the jump and training are completed in one day and your instructor will be in control of your landing.

How does your fundraising help?

Every 15 minutes someone loses their sight. However, right now many people receive no support at all when given this news. We want to change that.

We’re on a mission to make sure every UK hospital has a dedicated Sight Loss Advisor. Your fundraising will help us be there when people need us most, as we grow our network of expert advisors and reach everyone who needs our emotional and practical support.

Watch our film and be inspired by blind and partially sighted athletes who push their limits to realise their dreams.
