Clan Cancer Support is looking for thrill seekers to take a leap of faith in its Skydive fundraising challenge this summer.

Adrenaline junkies will plunge 10,000 ft from a five person aircraft hovering over the scenery of Fife and Perthshire on June 30.  

Participants will experience 30 seconds of free-fall, skydiving through the air at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour.  

The event will take place at Skydive St Andrews with all participants paired with a fully qualified instructor who will guide them through the jump and activate their parachute for a safe landing.

Alana Welsh, Clan’s community development coordinator, said: “Our skydive challenge is a once in a lifetime opportunity and a unique and unforgettable way to raise money for Clan’s vital cancer support services.

“Whilst it is not for the faint hearted, participants will have professional support throughout the experience making it the perfect opportunity to tick something off their bucket list with complete confidence.” 

Registration is now open with participants required to raise a minimum of £500 one month prior to the jump or pay Clan £280 to cover the cost of the skydive and set their own fundraising goal.
