Loving sons and daughters in Strabane can see their mothers jump for joy this Motherâ€™s Day (Sunday 22 March 2009) by giving the uniquely exhilarating gift of an RNID skydive on the weekend of her choice.
RNID Northern Ireland, the largest charity representing the 219,000 people in Northern Ireland who are deaf or hard of hearing, is inviting families to sign up for tandem skydiving at an airfield in Garvagh and enjoy the adrenaline-boosting experience of falling through the sky from approximately 10,000 feet.
Places will be awarded on a first come, first served basis, and are free to fundraisers who raise a minimum of Â£390 for RNIDâ€™s research programmes and services for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Caroline Jupe, RNID Events & Community Fundraising Manager, says: â€œDonâ€™t â€˜keep mumâ€™ about RNIDâ€™s skydiving and make Motherâ€™s Day extra special this year by signing up your family for a memorable jump on one of the weekends that follow!â€
As places are limited and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis, anyone who wants to take part should register their interest as soon as possible. Parental consent is required for 16 and 17 year olds signing up.
