A Fenland airfield is teaming up with St John Ambulance on a fundraising initiative.

Chatteris Airfield is one of the venues were fundraisers can unleash their inner daredevil and leap out of a plane at 10,000 ft as part of the first aid charity’s Superhero Skydive in June.

Training and the jump, which will be in tandem with an experienced parachute jumper, are completed in one day.

Anyone who is aged 16 or over (with parental consent) can take part.

By paying an initial non-re-fundable registration fee of £70 and raising a minimum of £395 for St John Ambulance you jump for free.

Alternatively, you can pay an initial registration fee of £70 and pay for £200 jump costs then fundraise as much as you can.

To register for the St John Ambulance Superhero Skydive, go to www.sja.org.uk/superhero or call 01245 265678 or 0207 324 4168.
