Celebrate 35 years of ELF with the ultimate adrenaline rush

21 April 2022

Exeter Leukaemia Fund was established as a charity in 1987. This year, to mark our 35th anniversary, we are inviting adventurous supporters to take to the skies and complete the ultimate fundraising challenge - a skydive!

The ELF archive is full of brave individuals who have jumped for ELF and raised thousands of pounds in sponsorship for our patient support services in the process. Our last ELF group jump was in 2017, when 18 people each completed a 15,000ft jump to celebrate our 30th anniversary. In 2016, the Chairman of our Crediton Fundraising Group, Nick Cordwent, completed the challenge alongside his mother, two sons and a family friend. And back in 2014, ELF's own Senior Transport Driver, Dave Williams, took on the challenge and showed the rest of the staff team how it's done!

This year, we look forward to welcoming a new group of supporters to the ELF Skydive Hall of Fame. The 2022 Skydive is on Sunday 14th August at Dunkeswell Airfield near Honiton, providing amazing views over the Devon countryside. Family and friends are welcome to come and spectate, and there is even a special 'Jump for Free' scheme through our partnership with Skydive Buzz, meaning supporters can complete their skydive for only £50.
