Fancy flinging yourself out of an aeroplane in support of the industry charity the Rainy Day Trust?
If so, why not join other intrepid housewares industry volunteers on Sunday September 22 at the British Army Parachute Association training centre at Netheravon, Wiltshire – right in the middle of the MOD’s training facilities on Salisbury Plain.
You will jump – with a qualified instructor – at around 14,000 ft, experiencing a 50 second 120 mph freefall before the tandem parachute is deployed. This is then followed by a 5 minute canopy ride.
This will be the third time the Rainy Day Trust has held the event, which has raised almost £28,000 over the last two years.
“All we ask for is lots of courage and sponsorship to cover the cost of the jump/donation,” the charity said. “Why not tick one off the list and get involved? You’ll be helping people from our industry. It’s an exhilarating – not to be missed – experience. The one thing we can guarantee you is a memory that will stay with you for life!”
The Rainy Day Trust is the only charity which exists solely to help anyone who has spent at least five years of their working life in the UK’s housewares or home improvement business (including people who have worked in retail, manufacturing,wholesale, distribution or in support functions) – with unexpected financial burdens.
