Chichester Caravans in Nutbourne braved the skies in aid of St Wilfrid’s Hospice.
The four skydivers, Mark Thomas, Lisa Hammond, Harry Marshall and Caroline Baxter, managed to raise £1,700 for the hospice on Sunday at Sailsbury Airfield.
Lisa said: “As individuals it had always been a goal of ours to complete a skydive and what better opportunity than one which raised money for a worthwhile cause such as St Wilfrid’s Hospice?
“It was the first jump for all of us and we were excited to be there, falling from a plane 10,000 feet above the earth at a speed of 120mph.
“The feeling of free falling was amazing and the views of Salisbury were spectacular as it was a beautifully clear day.
“The overall view from the four of us was that it was an awesome experience and definitely one to be recommended.”
“Thanks to all the cheeky chappies at Salisbury Airfield for making our day one to remember!”
Fellow skydiver Mark said it was his first skydive and he barely slept the night before, but despite feeling nervours initially, he was okay on the day.
“It didn’t feel scary, even with your feet hanging out the door,” he said.
“You get adrenaline from it.
“We all thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was for a good cause, of course!”
