There’s lots of reasons why people jump out of a perfectly good aeroplane: to celebrate a milestone birthday; because they’re on holiday; to get the cool t-shirt; or to help someone’s Nana or Granddad get more comfortable.

The Kerikeri Retirement Village Care Facility turned 20 this year and their mattresses need replacing. At a cost of $600 each the not-for-profit organisation needs your help, so we're asking you to jump to it and book a skydive.

Do a Tandem Skydive on Saturday October 29th and Skydive Zone Bay of Islands will donate $50 from every jump to the new mattress fund for Kerikeri Retirement Village.

Jump from 12,000 ft and experience over 45 seconds freefall. Or, if you're feeling really hardcore, you can do Northland's highest jump at 16,000 feet, and get over a minute of freefall. This is normally $420.

Scared? Check out the pictures of someone's Nana actually doing the jump - and just for the record she went the whole hog and jumped 16,000 ft.

You’ll have a blast and help an elderly person sleep better. So what are you waiting for? Jump to it and book your skydive today.
