Children’s charity Jessie May is daring supporters to take to the skies and wing walk to boost funds.
The charity, whose nurses support local families caring for a terminally ill child across Bath and North East Somerset, has joined forces with AeroSuperBatics, the world’s only formation wing walking team, to offer the exhilarating fundraising experience.
People are now being encouraged to sign up for a thrilling wing walking experience in support of Jessie May. Wing walkers are strapped to the top wing of a biplane flown by a wing walking display pilot to experience a series of flypasts, zoom climbs and steep dives.
The wing walking experience take place at AeroSuperBatics’ private airfield RFC Rendcomb in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, and wing walkers’ families and friend are invited to come along and watch their loved one taxi across the airfield on the biplane’s wing.
Helen Mackie, Senior Community Events Fundraiser at Jessie May, said, “If you’ve ever dreamt about flying, this is the perfect experience for you – and on top of soaring the skies you’ll be making a world of difference to the families the Jessie May Nurses support too!
“We are thrilled to have teamed up with AeroSuperBatics and offer wing walking to our brave supporters. We’re now calling on adrenaline-seeking fundraisers to sign up and help raise vital funds for our charity, so our nurses can continue to support families caring for a terminally ill child, and welcome additional children to our services.
“It costs £50 to register for the wing walk and we ask that supporters pledge to raise £1,000 in sponsorship prior to the big day. The actual wing walking experience can be booked on a date suitable to each fundraiser – so sign up and prepare for the ride of your life and help support Jessie May!”
