Due to popular demand, the Medway Hospital Charity is hosting another wing walk challenge on Saturday September 24, with the last few places still available to book.

The inaugural event on Saturday June 11 saw seven daredevil fundraisers, including Medway Maritime Hospital staff Justin Longman, Nicola Spearpoint, Ros Pearce and Nina Lee, take to the skies above Headcorn Aerodrome to raise money for The Medway Hospital Charity. The group raised an incredible £7,000 thanks to donations from their friends, families and NHS colleagues.

Among the wing walkers was Ros Pearce, a Ward Hostess on Pearl Ward at Medway Maritime Hospital, who was inspired to take on the challenge to mark her 70th Birthday this year. Ros said: “I was looking for a challenge and always wanted to do a wing walk or an event like this of an extreme nature. Overall I really enjoyed it and look forward to doing another challenge for the hospital next year!’’

Cheryl Jones, Fundraising Officer, said: “Our first wing walking event was a real success! It was fantastic to see our team take to the sky and experience this unique challenge. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part and raised vital funds for Medway Maritime Hospital and we are looking forward to the next event on September 24. A special thanks also to The Wing Walk Company for their expertise and warm welcome. The funds raised from the event will be used to improve the lives of patients and staff at Medway Maritime Hospital.”

If you would like to take part in an event that gets your adrenaline pumping, you can join for a:

  • Charity Bungee Jump in central London on Thursday 1 September
  • Another wing walk on Saturday 24 September, or
  • Sky dive any time during the year.
