Forest Holme - Skydivers bring Good Vibrations to Poole hospice charity

Thursday, June 20, 2024

Seven ‘wobblers’ from Poole recently completed a charity skydive in support of Forest Holme Hospice, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Jan Kingsland, Cherry Lorberg, Alex Thornton, Sharon Baker, Barry Grundy, Rob Foden and Kayleigh Williams are all members of Good Vibrations based at The Junction in Broadstone, Poole, which provides an Ultimate Whole Body Vibration Workout to help increase health and wellbeing.

The group took the plunge at Old Sarum Airfield near Sailsbury, jumping out of a plane from 15,000 feet and free falling for 60 seconds at 125 mph. So far they have raised over £5,000 for the hospice charity that provides palliative and end-of life-care and support to more than 1,500 people each year across Poole, Wimborne and the Isle of Purbeck with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.

Jank Kingsland, said, “We had an amazing time with the skydive. It was a team effort as there was six of us and we were all there to support each other and watch each one of us go up and down! 

Forest Holme Hospice holds a special place in our hearts at Good Vibrations Poole as there are so many of our wobblers who sadly have had family or friends that needed the care and compassion from Forest Holme Hospice. Kaliegh was even more determined to do fundraising as she experienced the sad time of the passing of her mum, who was so young at 55 years old.”
