SNOWDON BY SUNRISE - NEW DATE ADDED

Sunday 26th September 2021 – SOLD OUT

Due to the quick sell out of our early September event, we are delighted to have secured another date!

An amazing experience that should be on everybody’s list! Climb Snowdon at night and raise vital funds to Support Staffordshire Together.

We will start the climb in the dark very early in the morning to reach the 1,085m summit of Snowdon as the sun rises over the spectacular Snowdonia National Park. A wonderfully different way to enjoy the natural beauty and unique scenery of the beautiful Snowdonia.

The event is fully guided and supported by experienced professionals and includes a wonderful breakfast at a highly-rated local café after the walk.

The cost of £45 per person includes a guided trek and your breakfast.

Tandem SKYDIVE

Saturday 9th October 2021  |  Whitchurch Airfield

If you’re a thrill seeker this is your chance to experience 120mph freefall!

You will be freefalling through the air (without the parachute deployed) for several thousand feet harnessed to a professional parachute instructor at all times throughout the descent.  This is the only way you can jump from such an altitude without spending thousands of pounds becoming a freefall parachutist. This is literally the chance of a lifetime!

More

All you have to do is raise £395 in aid of Support Staffordshire by asking your friends and colleagues to sponsor you, using our specially designed sponsorship forms which you will find at the back of this information pack. Please do not be put off by this amount – if you ask everybody you know to sponsor you, you will find you can quite easily raise the minimum £395 sponsorship and remember, every penny you raise over the minimum will be further contributing to Support Staffordshire and giving you the chance to make an exhilarating freefall parachute jump for FREE! 

Download the information pack here.

Please note you must  provide a £70 booking deposit when you book online (which can be taken out of your minimum sponsorship money).
