Extreme Challenges

Want to tick something off of your bucket list this year? Extreme Weston Hospicecare covers everything from skydiving to abseiling to wing walking. These are some of the most extreme challenges that you can set yourself.


For those who like a challenge while raising money for a worthwhile cause, Weston Hospicecare regularly holds skydive events in conjunction with Skydive Buzz – and has two jump dates coming up on August 30 and September 21. Taking off from Dunkerswell airfield, participants can enjoy a tandem skydive from 15,000 feet – the highest altitude possible without needing additional O2!

Freefalling for two miles at a thrilling 120 miles per hour, followed by a leisurely parachute ride back to the ground gives an amazing rush of adrenaline, followed by an overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility. A skydive is the ultimate bucket list experience, and by raising money for Weston Hospicecare at the same time, you get to give something back to the local community.

Get involved:
