Take a leap for charity

AFTER Her Majesty The Queen parachuted into the London 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremony with James Bond, a national disability charity is hoping our Monarch’s acting debut will inspire others to take a leap to help disabled young people across the UK.

Action For Kids is calling on fearless fund-raisers to take a leap over the summer months and skydive to raise money for the charity.

Celebrating its 21st birthday this year, Action For Kids is a charity that supports children and young people with physical and learning disabilities find greater levels of independence and opportunity through the provision of appropriate aid and support.

Fund-raising and community events officer Lucy Duxbury stated: “Skydiving is a fantastic way to raise vital funds for the charity. And there has never been a better time to sign up to such an exhilarating challenge – after seeing the Queen and 007 make their spectacular entrance into the London 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremony!”

She went on: “With Action For Kids, you can jump out of a plane for free! All you need to do is raise a minimum of £395 in sponsorship and your exhilarating, once in a lifetime opportunity will cost you nothing but a few nerves.

“So make this summer extra special and book your freefall experience with Action For Kids today.”

There are 25 airfields open all year round across the UK, where fund-raisers can take on their skydiving challenges.
