The Wroughton-based charity is inviting people to rise the wing of a Boeing Stearman aircraft on 15 September to help raise funds.

A spokesperson said: "Experience the world from a completely different perspective and enjoy the adrenaline rush strapped to a 1940s Boeing Stearman biplane, all to raise money to support Prospect Hospice.

"Your adrenaline will hit new heights as you experience a series of flypasts, zoom climbs, steep dives and banks in front of the family and friends you bring along on the day. 

"You’ll feel the sense of freedom as you fly through the air, taking in the stunning views surrounding the airfield whilst waving to friends and family down below.

There are five spaces remaining for Prospect Hospice’s wing walking day so don’t delay, sign up today for a once in a lifetime experience and a great way to raise much needed funds for your local."

For those who want to raise funds but prefer to do so without being strapped to the top of an aircraft, the hospice’s Kids Starlight Walk is an option.

On 17 October, hundreds of local families will light up the night in a sponsored walk around Swindon.
