Not for the faint hearted – imagine yourself standing at the open doorway of an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet, then jumping out and free-falling at over 120mph! We have now teamed up with UK Skydive to give you an opportunity to take on an adrenaline challenge for Age UK Merton. Click here for more information and to sign up.



Running can keep you fit and healthy and prevent obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke and can also improve your emotional and mental wellbeing. Signing up to take part in a run for charity can also help to motivate you to get off the sofa when you really don’t want to pull on your trainers and head out!
