Treloar’s staff take to the skies to skydive and raise over £5000
On Saturday the 24th June, seven members of Treloar’s staff, along with two more of our supporters, travelled to Netheravon Airfield, Salisbury, to take to the skies and skydive in aid of Treloar School and College.
After boarding a very small plane, in their jumping groups, they flew to the designated altitude of 13,000 feet. With a mixture of nerves, excitement and a little trepidation, their brilliant instructors, who they were strapped to, reassured them before jumping from the aircraft! After a breath-taking 45 seconds freefall, an array of colourful parachutes appeared through the clouds as they all floated down to earth!
Julie Peters, Treloar’s Residential House Team Leader, said:
This was one off my bucket list of achieving a tandem skydive. I’m grateful for Treloar’s for allowing me the opportunity to do this. I will never forget the experience, and I would recommend anyone to give it a go. I would do this all over again. The whole experience was amazing and such a lovely day and a great atmosphere from everyone.
Zizan Rozman, Treloar’s Deputy College Class Technician, said:
I have had the best experience in my life! I’m so glad I did the skydiving and managed to raise some funds for our students whilst enjoying myself jumping off a plane! Thanks for organising the event!
The skydive is just one of many active events Treloar’s offers not only its staff but also the public. Active challenges such as this one help raise crucial funds for children and young people at Treloar’s.
Our amazing fundraisers make a real difference to the lives of the young people here at Treloar’s. You can help in many ways: run a marathon, hold a cake sale, climb a mountain or play TRELOTTERY, the possibilities are endless!
