A Tandem Skydive in aid of Vision Support is the ultimate thrill. The aircraft will “run in” over the airfield at around 10,000’ when the door will open. You will move to the door securely attached to your highly qualified Instructor and jump into the air! After freefalling to 5,000’ your Instructor will open the parachute and you can help him (if you wish) steer the parachute down to a gentle landing on the “dropzone”.
Meet Vision Support Charity Skydivers
My name is Liahll Bruce, I work for Barclays in Llandudno and Colwyn Bay as a mortgage advisor and live in Rhyl. I wanted to raise funds for a local charity and decided to pick one that meant a lot to me, worked in my area and one that I could see would have a massive impact on the people it helped; so I came to Vision support. I ran the Virgin London Marathon 2011 and raised £1500 for you which went towards the new centre in Chester. I decided to do the skydive as I've got a massive fear of heights and recall having vertigo on the side of a small mountain when I was about 14 so who knows what I'll be like jumping out the side of a plane at 10,000ft. I am keen to help the communities that I work and live in, vision is something so simple that we all take for granted and given the thought of losing it I couldn't imagine being without it. At Barclays they have invested a lot of time and money in helping support these causes with doubling and monies raised to the value of £750.

My name is Hasmukh Dave. I work for Vision Support as a Rehabilitation Officer in Conwy County. I have been thinking about raising fund for a local charity and giving something back to community. I decided to raise fund for Vision Support as it is a local charity which provides support to people with visual impairment in Conwy and other parts of North Wales. As an employee of Vision Support for nearly 5 years and working directly with people with visual impairment, I have seen changes Vision Support services make on individuals lives.
Over the past few years, I have supported family members and friends who have participated in different activities to raise fund for different causes. This year I decided to move one step forward and raise fund for Vision Support by doing tandem skydive. I decided to do tandem skydive as I am not very keen on heights and jumping off the plane from 10000 feet is going to be the scariest thing of my life.

Hi, my name is Fredie Fisk and I am a student at University of Chester. I am currently studying BA Hons Fine Art and Photography. I am raising money to do a sponsored Skydive for Vision Support. I am doing the jump in aid of my grandfather who was blind and passed away very recently.
I am a very sporty and outgoing person. In the year 2010 I did a bungee jump in Canada. This was not in aid of anything; I did it purely just for fun. However, being a part of the sponsored Skydive benefits me in two ways; I can raise money for a charity I strongly believe in and I can also give myself the challenge to do something I have never done before. I am very excited for the event.
To raise money for my charity I have asked friends, family and colleagues to sponsor me. To raise bigger amounts of money I asked the ‘Bridgnorth Lions Club’ to sponsor me. Bridgnorth Lions are a club of twenty plus members that organise fundraising events and raise money for good causes. I also agreed to help out on a farm in return for some sponsorship. If I am unable to raise the money by asking friends, family and other fundraising societies then I will organise a bake sale or car wash to raise the rest of the money
