parachuting
Shelter is asking people to take a leap
of faith and do a parachute jump or
tandem skydive to help raise money
for homeless or badly housed people.
Fun-seeking fundraisers can choose
either a 10,000ft jump attached to a
professional instructor in a tandem
dive, or a solo ‘static line’ jump from
3,000ft. Anyone wishing to take part
must raise between £395 and £535 in
sponsorship, depending on the type
of jump and where they want to do
it. Each year Shelter, with its network
of 50 advice centres, helps to house
more than 100,000 people.
