You can arrive any time convenient to you between the hours of 11:00am and 3:00pm. Jumps will take place between 11:30am and 2:00pm (jumps will be grouped every 15 minutes). The last jump will take place at 2:00pm. Each Teddy Bear owner will be issued with an approximate jump time. We anticipate long queues of teddies for the later jump times so you may wish to come earlier if you can.
What Do I Do When I Arrive?
Please report to the event stall at The Strand where you will find the Clerks on hand to receive your Teddy Bear Entry Form, Sponsor Money and provide your teddy with a jump time. *Please note that there is no age limit on teddy bear owners!* The Parachute Team will also be there to supervise the teddy bear ‘weigh in’ and carry out a safety check on all parachutes. It is the responsibility of the Parachute Team to make sure your bear is well prepared for their jump.
Sponsor forms can be downloaded by visiting the sponsor my teddy area. Please remember that each bear that jumps needs to raise a minimum of £10. Please bring your sponsorship money and form with you on the day and give it to one of the clerks in the Event Marquee.
***ALL TEDDY BEARS THAT TAKE PART WILL BE ISSUED WITH A BRAVERY CERTIFICATE!***
Q: Why do bear's have fur coats?
A: Because they would look silly in anoraks!
