A parachute jump is a great way to raise funds
Well you said you wanted to do something a bit more adventurous.
There are certain people who could never in a million years throw themselves out of a plane with just the equivalent of a giant silk hanky to stop them plummeting to earth.
There are also the other kind who see such a course of action as the only way to get a real buzz!
If you are of the latter kind and want to raise some money for the causes closest to your heart then maybe a parachute jump is the thing for you.
Its actually surprisingly easy to arrange. Many skydiving clubs offer easily affordable 1 or 2 day courses culminating in a jump.
fact many clubs and specialist companies actually go out
looking for charity jumpers to take part. Some larger charities have special set ups with local parachute organisations making things even easier to arrange.
To raise money all you have to do is find enough sponsorship to cover the fee and anything over that is profit for your chosen cause.
Need help collecting the sponsorship / donations?
Set up an online donation page with JustGiving
Don't fancy going alone? Sign up for a tandem jump. This is especially good for older people or those less fit and able.
You are basically strapped to an experienced instructor. Jumping with them and coming down under the same parachute. This involves a lot less training.
It also often means that some unlikely candidates can make the jump they always dreamed of. This can also lead to greater levels of sponsorship.
There is no doubt that Parachuting Pensioners flinging themselves out of airplanes with gay abandon can really bring in the cash!
So if you fancy a real fundraising challenge with a difference. why not......Reach For The Sky!
