Dare to Jump: Save Lives
Put your daring to the test with an exhilarating challenge for an incredible cause! We want YOU to join #TeamOrange - take on our 400ft Bungee Jump Challenge in South Wales on Saturday 24 August 2019 and be a part of our fundraising family!
Help support our EMERGENCY RESPONSE campaign to help protect and save thousands of families from the devastating effects of natural disasters and conflict.
Located in South Wales this is a truly iconic jump. As you are raised up to the top of a 300ft crane over a 100ft quarry you will realise the magnitude of what you are about to undertake; this is a truly unique jump - falling 400ft disappearing into a quarry.
With the surrounding Welsh countryside stretching for miles around, the 400ft Bungee Jump does not disappoint, offering fantastic views as you ascend the 300ft crane, the 100ft quarry below will look further away that you imagine and as you hear the words "3, 2, 1, Bungee!" you will need all your courage to take that leap of faith off the platform!
Will you DARE to JUMP!?
