Ben & Rob Skydive For Charity | Willen Hospice


We are thrilled to announce that our incredibly brave team members Ben and Rob will be taking part in a charity skydive on the 26th of September to raise money for the amazing Willen Hospice.

Both Ben and Rob believe that this is the perfect opportunity to overcome a fear whilst raising money for a fantastic cause which is close to many people's hearts.

Willen Hospice provides specialist end-of-life care for adults, they focus on four key areas such as emotional support, symptom control, spiritual support and care for carers.

The team at Willen Hospice are remarkable at their job and show great passion and dedication towards providing impeccable care for the adults within the hospice.

More often than not, the most distressing aspect of suffering with a life-limiting illness is both the pain and symptoms that can occur.

The team of devoted staff and volunteers are able to give compassionate, specialist support to patients and their family members, to help deal with the physical and emotional effects of both their illness and their treatments, as they wish to.

Ben and Rob will be taking part in a Tandem skydive with Hinton Skydive, where they will prepare to jump 13,000 feet out of a plane whilst strapped to the front of a Tandem instructor.

When jumping out at 13,000 feet Ben and Rob will accelerate to an astonishing 120mph and covering on average a thousand feet in 5 seconds 

Due to the airfield being so large, fortunately there is no limit on the amount of family and friends that both Ben and Rob can have come along on the big day.

This will be a phenomenal day out for both Ben and Rob as well as the whole team and all their family and friends all whilst raising money for a spectacular cause.

Ben and Rob have been looking forward to what will be an unforgettable day for sometime now and are excited to see how much money they can raise for the magnificent Willen Hospice.

The whole team at Oakham Garden Services wish both Ben and Rob the best of luck with this courageous event for charity and look forward to being a part of it!
