Parachute Jumps

Reach for the skies

Epilepsy Scotland Adrenaline challenges

This is one event that proves our supporters will do anything for their favourite charity. The sky really is the limit with this exhilarating parachute challenge that will see you soar through the air in true daredevil style.

Tandem, solo, accelerated - The choice is yours

Does a 3,000 feet solo jump sound like your idea of an adventure? Or would you prefer to tandem jump with the security of an instructor from 10,000 feet at a descend rate of 120mph? If these jumps don't get your teeth chattering and knees knocking then how about a solo accelerated freefall challenge?

Minimum sponsorship varies from £360 to £535 depending on which type of jump you’d like. Please call us for more information and remember we’re always here to help achieve your fundraising goals!

 

White Water Rafting

Raise your pulse and raise funds for Epilepsy Scotland at the same time. If you're up for a challenge and looking for some excitement why not try White Water Rafting? Epilepsy Scotland staff and friends did just that!

Ten Epilepsy Scotland supporters went to Splash Watersports Centre in Aberfeldy and took on the River Tummel, braving the cold and choppy waters to raise a super £675!

White water rafting

Laura, Administrator at Epilepsy Scotland, said 'On the bus to the River Tummel I was very nervous, as were a few others. The safety briefing was quite intense and it wasn't made easier by the fact that I'd put one of my wetsuits on back to front! After an hour of water fights, bouncing off rocks, and 'wheelies', we were tossed along three sets of rapids and a mini waterfall. Our screams could be heard for miles! But what an amazing experience for everyone, and we raised loads of money too!'

Epilepsy Scotland supporter Mike Stark, of Runaway Productions, was on board with his waterproof video camera! Check out his footage to see how we got on...
