Skydive for children’s charity NSPCC

NSPCC Scotland is looking for people in Angus to reach for the sky and take part in The Big Skydive to support its work with vulnerable children.

The Big Skydive, which takes place on October 5 and 6, will see supporters take part in the sponsored skydive from 20 airfields across the country, to raise funds for NSPCC.

Brave skydivers will freefall at over 120 mph from 10,000 feet high in a tandem skydive to support the NSPCC – and if you raise the minimum sponsorship money you get to skydive for free.

To take part you must pay a reduced rate deposit of £50 and commit to raising £395.

Nadia Whitmore, the charity’s fund-raising manager, said: “NSPCC’s vision is to end cruelty to children in the UK, and we believe we can make a difference for all children.

“The NSPCC teams across all of our service centres provide a range of cutting edge, therapeutic services to children and families.

“We also run many UK-wide services including ChildLine, the NSPCC’s free 24-hour helpline for children and young people in need of advice and support, and our innovative ChildLine Schools Service, which aims to help younger children recognise and know how to protect themselves from all forms of abuse.

Solo or tandem skydives are available and Jump sites include Auchterarder and St Andrews. No experience is necessary as full training will be given.
