Skydive for meningitis charity

First published in

MENINGITIS Now are looking for dynamic daredevils to free-fall at speeds of up to 120mph and witness captivating views while fundraising for meningitis and to take the wind out of this deadly disease.

The national charity’s 10,000ft Skydive Day takes place on Saturday, July 5, in Swansea, South Wales.

Meningitis Now will cover the cost of the tandem jump, run by professional company Skydive Swansea, if participants raise £395 minimum sponsorship.

The charity was formed when Meningitis UK and Meningitis Trust, founders of the meningitis movement in the UK, united in 2013.

The charity, which has almost 30 years experience, exists to save lives and rebuild futures by funding research, raising awareness and providing support.

Their vision is a future where no one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives.

To take to the skies to help them achieve their vision, call Emma King, Regional Events Fundraiser, on 01453 768000 or email
