Skydive for a good cause

Darlington and Stockton Times: Great North Air Ambulance Great North Air Ambulance

A NORTH-EAST company is inviting people to take a leap for charity.

Skydive St George, which is based at Durham Tees Valley Airport, is offering fundraisers the chance to take to the skies.

The company – one of the fastest growing skydiving centres in the country – works with a number of charities who will cover the cost of a skydive in exchange for sponsorship money.

A skydive in aid of North-East charity RAID, which works to raise sexual health awareness in young people, will take place on Sunday, August 3.

A sponsored tandem skydive will take place in early September to raise funds for the Great North Air Ambulance (GNAA).

Anyone interested in skydiving for the GNAA must pay a deposit of £50 and raise a minimum of £250 for charity.

Skydiving sessions are weather dependent, suitable for over-16s and anyone over 40 will need to provide a declaration of fitness form.
