NEWSTRAID PARACHUTE JUMP 2018

3rd August 2018
It is back again for 2018, but bigger and better than before, we are looking for volunteers, nominees and anyone who wishes to face their fears or want an adrenaline rush! – they can be a family member, friend or just anyone who wishes to have fun!

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.
