The Donkey Sanctuary is appealing for daredevils to take part in a world record skydiving attempt and help the charity at the same time.
The Guinness World Record attempt for the most tandem skydives within 24 hours takes place on 20th June 2015.
The current record is 281 tandem dives. But this year the organisers hope to smash that record with 333 tandems jumping from a height of 15,000 feet, the highest skydive possible without oxygen, and what experts call “the ultimate experience”.
The Donkey Sanctuary has eight spaces to fill. Jumpers will take part from Dunkeswell Airfield in Devon - a fantastic location from which to enjoy this once in a lifetime opportunity to take part in a Guinness World Record attempt and to help donkeys at the same time.
Community Fundraiser, Emily Morris, said: “Come along and be part of a world record attempt and help donkeys at the same time. We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to skydive for this great cause! We can help support your fundraising efforts and make sure everybody knows how hard you are working to help us help donkeys and mules in 27 countries worldwide. Please get in touch!”
Jason Farrant, managing director of Skydive UK, said others had tried and failed to beat Skydive’s record. He said: “The bar has been set very high. 15,000 feet is the highest you can do the jump without oxygen. Other places settle for much less height - which we don’t think is the ultimate experience.”
