Group Sky Dive Challenge 2016!

Awesome people needed! Could you take on the challenge of a lifetime to raise much needed funds for the animals in our care? 

We are holding a mammoth Skydive event on Saturday 10th September 2016 – and we have 20 places available for the spectacular 10,000ft jump over Salisbury Plain (jumpers have the chance to upgrade their jump to 15,000ft – the highest in the UK!)

This is a truly amazing experience – you will literally fall through the air and rush towards the earth at about 125 mph – if you’ve chosen to jump from 10,000ft this will last approximately 30 seconds (or 60 seconds if you’re jumping from 15,000ft).

The rush is spectacular – and is often described as being transported to another world, and better still because you'll be raising money for the animals in our care at the same time! 

If you can summon the courage to join us in the air, or just want to find out more, email katie@rspca-bristol.org.uk, call us on 0117 300 3962.

Date: Saturday 10th September 2016! 

Cost: £50 non -refundable deposit, payable directly to GoSkydive and £395 to raise in sponsorship!

Book now to give yourself plenty of time to hit your target fundraising goal! *The sponsorship target will cover your jump costs, and a donation to Bristol Dogs and Cats Home.

Edinburgh Night Ride: 18/19 JUNE 2016

50 miles – one night – see the city in a new light!

The sun sets, the city sleeps and hundreds of cyclists will take to the streets to conquer the 50 mile route for charity.

Taking in the iconic sights of this beautiful city – the Royal Mile, the Castle, the Scott Monument – our route includes Arthur’s Seat with stunning night views of the city from the Royal Observatory and past the Scottish Parliament, Holyrood Palace and many more attractions.

This is a rare chance to explore the Scottish capital at a time when much of the traffic has abated – enjoy the merriment of night life and the tranquility of the Georgian crescents and cobbled streets as you pass through in the moonlight

Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis so register today. The registration fee is only £34 per person but we do ask that you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £160 for the animals in our care.

Sign up as an individual and their team will motivate and encourage you en route! Alternatively sign up as a team of friends, family or work colleagues (there is a group discount for 10 or more)

For more information visit their website, send us an email or call us on 0117 3003968


Adventure Challenges

Trekathon

Taking part in a TrekathonIf an overseas adventure seems a little too daunting, why not take on a UK based Trekathon! From the wonders of Stonehenge to the historical Hadrian's Wall, or even the more local Cheddar to Glastonbury hike - there really is something to suit everyone.

These one-day events cover a marathon distance of approx 26 miles, presenting a tough physical challenge and an ideal way to raise money for animals in need. They also make great team-building events!

Whether you fancy dramatic coastal scenery or quintessential English countryside, flatter terrain or rolling hills, there’s plenty of choice.

Freefall from 10,000 ft. at high at speeds of 125mph for 30 seconds before the parachute drifts you down to earth (or 60 seconds if you choose to upgrade your jump to a 15,000 ft. jump!)

The thrill of the jump and the view of a lifetime will be coupled with the knowledge that you are helping literally thousands of animals in need.
