Take a walk on the wild side for Pilgrims Hospices with our brand new, adrenaline-fuelled Wing-Walking challenge.
Experience a true sense of freedom as you take to the skies in aid of Pilgrims Hospices. Soar through the air at speeds of up to 120mph strapped to the wing of a Boeing Stearman biplane! You’ll take in the breathtaking views of the east Kent countryside from a birds eye view, all whilst raising much needed funds for local hospice care.
