We would like to say a huge congratulations to the nine skydivers who braved the jump in aid of our Homes for Veterans service on June 6th. This poignant occasion was not only to raise vital funds for the Veterans in need of our support today but to also pay tribute and commemorate those who served during Operation Overlord, otherwise known as D-Day, 75 years ago.

For one of our jumpers Joe, the day was also of added significance. As well as celebrating his 17th birthday, he was also jumping in recognition of his Great-Grandfather who served in the Royal Dragoon Guards during D-Day and was amongst those landing on Gold Beach in Normandy on 6th June 1944.

Thank you so much to the amazing team from Nationwide Salisbury and Mike Bedford for your efforts in making a difference to homeless and vulnerable Veterans!

We are looking forward to our next group of skydivers jumping at Go Skydive in Salisbury on the 16th June!
