Byline: The RNLI is offering the chance for supporters to help break the World Record for the most tandem skydives in one day on 14 June.

Aiming for a World Record of at least 200 participants, with 40 RNLI places available at sites across the UK, sign up before 11 April to take part.

Those who raise £400 in sponsorship can skydive for free while at least £140 is donated directly to the RNLI.                      

The RNLI’s courageous volunteers saved 325 lives at sea in 2013, which roughly equates to the number of seconds spent falling back to Earth from 10,000 feet up.

Leesa Harwood, Director of Fundraising and Communications says: ‘It’s so exciting to be involved in setting a brand new World Record and we’re expecting to receive a lot of interest from those wanting to take part. From 10,000 feet up, it’s easy to be reminded that we are an island nation.’

Funds raised will help the charity volunteer crews continue saving lives at sea. Those brave enough to take on the challenge can do so at a selection of jump sites across the UK including Lancaster, Salisbury, Cambridgeshire and Nottingham.

Visit www.rnli.org.uk/worldrecordjump to sign up.
