You may remember Stanley Full. He’s the 95-year-old skydiving RAF veteran who loves raising money for charities close to his heart – like ours. And he’s at it again!
On Friday 8 September, Stan will be jumping from an aeroplane to once again show his support for his local air ambulance. He will be raising funds for The Royal Air Force Apprentices’ Association, The Old Haltonians.
No stranger to extreme challenges, this will be Stan’s second skydive for us since turning 90 – as well as making the “world’s fastest zipline” look like a walk in the park, back in 2019.
He said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend everyone to try it. Just go for it. There is great sense of satisfaction and achievement in being able to contribute to a good cause – especially when overcoming your fears again at 95-years-old.”
Preparing for his next jump, the veteran is inspired by the impact we have on lives across the region.
“Anyone in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight could find themselves in a situation where their life is in the balance, and only a specialist doctor or paramedic, delivered rapidly by the air ambulance, is capable of saving their life.”
Keith Wilson, our Director of Income and Engagement, said:
“We love stories like Stanley’s. His dedication and generosity is an inspiration to us all. We can’t thank him enough for helping to save lives in the region.”
