Jumpers needed for team tandem parachute jump

We need brave challengers to join our team parachute jump on Sunday 7th May 2017

The jump will take place at the British Parachute Association approved centre at Sibson Airfield, Wansford, Peterborough, PE8 6NE (less than an hour away from Leicester city centre).

Those taking part will receive a short pre-jump briefing. When its your time to jump it will take around 15 minutes in the aircraft to ascend to 13,000ft (around two miles up!) before you enjoy the thrill of free fall – descending to around 5,000ft before your instructor opens the parachute and you glide back down to earth.

During the six or so minutes under the parachute you can enjoy unique views of the local area whilst knowing you have done something truly amazing for local people in desperate need!

Those who jumped for Charity Link in May 2016 said it was ‘amazing’, ‘exhilarating’ and ‘one of the best things ever’, so don’t leave this challenge on your bucket list – jump with Charity Link in May 2017!

To join the team

By taking part in the jump you will be raising vital funds for local people in poverty, hardship or crisis.

Registration is all done online directly with the parachute company; you only need to pay the initial registration fee, which is £50.

We then ask you to raise a minimum of £300 sponsorship, from which Charity Link will cover the remaining cost of your jump.

 

Members of the Charity Link team will be there on the day to cheer you on and congratulate you post jump – so what are you waiting for….join the jump team today!
