Experience an adrenaline-fuelled adventure of a lifetime and take on a tandem skydive for Pilgrims Hospices on Saturday 6 June 2020.
The ongoing health crisis is at the forefront of many of our minds and, here at Pilgrims Hospices, we’ve been monitoring the guidance from authorities to inform how best we can do our part to protect our patients, staff, volunteers and, of course, the wider community that we serve.
Following the announcement made by government, advising the population to avoid all non-essential travel and contact, the decision has been made to postpone our skydive day that was scheduled to take place on Saturday 6th June 2020.
While we understand that this decision may come as a disappointment to some, we hope that you will agree that it is a necessary one in the fight to delay the spread of the coronavirus in our community
The sky’s the limit! Join other Pilgrims supporters all soaring through the sky, ticking something off their bucket list or taking extreme measures to conquer a fear of heights. Free fall from 12,000 ft amidst breathtaking views as you raise vital funds for hospice care across east Kent.
