Match the Matterhorn

Indoor Climbing Challenge
Harrogate Climbing Centre, Hornbeam Park
Choose your 1 hour time slot during Friday 29th 4pm to 9pm and Saturday 30th August 2014 10am to 3pm
In August our very own Trustee and Harrogate business man; Richard Cook is climbing the Matterhorn on the border between Switzerland and Italy; a mountain recognised for its difficulty to climb. Its summit is 4,478 metres (14,690 ft) high, making it one of the highest peaks in the Alps.
In support of his challenge and to help raise funds for sick children in Africa we are looking for individuals and teams to join together to match the 4,478 metre climb. It is a great way to raise money for the Funzi and Bodo Trust and there is no need to travel 1000 miles to do it! You do not have to have any previous climbing experience as you will be looked after by Harrogate Climbing Centres fully trained instructors. The way it works is you register to take part in 1 hour slots for a none refundable registration fee of £5 per hour. We have a maximum number of 9 people per team. Within the hour you will climb a minimum of 50 meters. We ask that each person aims to raise a minimum sponsorship of £50.

Group Sky Dive Saturday 4th October 2014

Feeling brave, why not experience the thrill of a 10,000 freefall charity tandem skydive for Funzi and Bodo Trust?

Tandom Sky DiveEntry for our charity group skydive on Saturday 4th October 2014 at Brigg airfield, North Lincolnshire is now open.

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet - the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below.

Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go - falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph!

Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below.

Imagine being able to do this for free whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help children and families in Kenya! Stop imagining, it's real and it's happening all the time and you can be part of it...
