Wingwalk 2022

Monday 11th July 2022 could be the day that you take the skies for East Cheshire Hospice!

 

Are you ready to take on this truly awesome challenge and do something amazing to support your local Hospice? Sign up today and experience the thrill of a lifetime this summer!

Flown by a professional wingwalking display pilot, you will take to the skies on the top wing of a Boeing Stearman biplane and experience an exciting series of flypasts, zoom climbs, steep dives and banks in front of the family and friends you bring along on the day.

Expect to be overwhelmed with excitement from the roar of the 450hp engine, that will guarantee you the most dramatic, thrilling and most powerful ride available in the UK!

As the propeller in front of you reaches speeds of 760mph, your adrenaline will hit new heights as the aircraft builds momentum for lift off!

Feel the sense of freedom as you fly through the air, taking in the stunning views, whilst waving to friends and family down below…

Company: AeroSuperBatics

Location: RFC Rendcomb Airfield, The Whiteway, Cirencester, Glos GL7 7DF

First time wingwalkers will be in the air for approx. 8-10 minutes at around 600ft. You will be able to have a little chat with the pilot before you fly to discuss whether you want a more gentle flight or a more extreme experience. If you have done a wingwalk before with AeroSuperBatics, you also have the option of a more intense experience, including loop-the-loops and barrel rolls at heights up to 2,500ft!

This is a great challenge to livestream! Just make sure you’re wearing your swimming costume, or even a fancy dress costume if you like! You can livestream on most social media networks such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube and this way you can make an event of it and invite everyone to watch. When they see you shivering and suffering, they’re bound to donate!

Headshave

The idea is very simple and a great attention grabber, guaranteed to attract publicity to your good cause. If you really don’t fancy a skydive, bungee jump or wing walk but still want a daredevil fundraising experience, a head shave could be for you…

 

It’s certainly a head and shoulders above all other fundraisers!

 

This sort of challenge needs to be promoted and advertised as much as possible. Having a venue booked for the head shave to take place is always a great way to gain extra supporters. Having a local club or pub sponsor you to have the head shave in their venue is great exposure for you and them. Or even in your workplace so all your colleagues can see how brave you are!

Circus Skills

One of the best ways to raise sponsorship for charity is to utilise skills that you already have and share them with others. People are always eager to learn and develop so if they can donate to the East Cheshire Hospice at the same time, this is positive all round!

If you have a unique skill, whether that’s aerobatics, juggling, stilts or even fire breathing, that you could teach online in exchange for donations towards the hospice.
