What you will be doing
Everyone who signs up will get the fantastic opportunity to complete a sponsored, tandem parachute jump.You’ll fly to around 13,000 feet (approximately two miles high!), fall at about 120 mph, descending to 5,000 feet in around 40 seconds. You’ll be in the air for a total of about 6 minutes.
Who you will be helping
Not only will you have an incredible, hair-raising experience, you’ll also be raising funds for The NewstrAid Benevolent Fund.
We help people and their immediate dependents, who have been employed in newspaper and magazine distribution in the UK and who have fallen on hard times. Distribution means people who deal with newspapers and magazines from the time they leave the printing press until they reach the reader.
How to take part
Anyone can take part whether you work in the news sector, for a magazine, publishing, wholesale, distribution or retail industry. Friends and relatives are also very welcome.
