Adventure fundraising

Adventure fundraising

For the cost of a deposit, and a commitment to raise a minimum sponsorship amount, you can head off on the adventure of a lifetime.

All trips include full support both before and during the event including guides, medical personnel and individual contacts provided by the event organisers. Additional support is available for certain treks - see individual brochures for more details. For full information, including deposit and minimum sponsorship, or to register, click any of the links below.


Skydiving

Calling all adrenaline junkies: could you take on the ultimate thrill ride to support our work?


This is a tandem skydive, so called because you will be falling through the air for several thousand feet before the instructor deploys the parachute. A qualified parachute instructor will be attached to you at all times. 


This is the only way you would be allowed to jump from a breath taking 10,000 feet without spending the thousands needed to become a parachutist yourself, making it quite literally the chance of a lifetime. To book your jump go to our dedicated booking page.
