James, who has multiple sclerosis, was hoping to take part in an outdoor skydive last year with staff and volunteers from Hydon Hill. However, he unfortunately was unable to.

Not one to give up, James's flying dreams come true last month at the iFly indoor skydiving centre in Basingstoke!

‘It was absolutely fabulous. I cannot wait to do it again!’ — James

A new challenge

James was joined Barbara, who has been visiting Hydon Hill since September last year, and was looking for a new challenge.
