Many say that it has a positive impact on your mind, body, and soul. And after the year we have had, what could be better? It’s safe, fun and a real confidence boost! Plus, you will be supporting the lives of local children and their families along the way with your fantastic fundraising. But don’t just take our word for it, here is what some of our previous dare devils had to say….
“With Covid-19 limiting what I could do to raise funds, due to the lock-down, it was a fantastic opportunity to raise some desperately needed funds for Chestnut Tree House, do something socially-distanced and take me totally out of my comfort zone!” – Martin
“Absolutely do it. You will not regret it and in fact you will want to get straight back up on the plane as soon as you’ve landed. One of the best experiences in my life and there, as cliched as it is, there really is nothing else like it.” – Andrew
