Fundraising

Glasgow’s Golden Generation needs your help now more than ever. Since the beginning of the year, GGG has supported over 700 older adults throughout our Covid-19 campaign and with your help we can reach even more. The charity provides vital services to the elderly such as befriending, essential food and items delivery service, welfare advice and weekly clubs.

There are many ways of how you can support our work, including through the giving of regular donations, fundraising events, runs and challenges.

FUNDRAISE FOR US

CHARITY SKYDIVE

If a parachute jump is on your bucket list then why not register with Glasgow’s Golden Generation and raise funds for a good cause while doing something you have always dreamed of?

Participants will enjoying spectacular views of the Perthshire and Tayside countryside as they jump from 10,000 feet freefalling at 120mph down to 5,000 feet before the parachute is opened up and you soar gently to the ground.

 To take part you must be of reasonable health as medicalchecks are required for those over 40. You must also weigh less than 14st or be within your height weight ratio as strict weight restrictions apply. Participants must be over 16 years of age to take part and those under 18 will require parent / guardian consent.

Participants must agree to raise a minimum of £500 in sponsorship as this includes the cost of the jump with the remainder being donated to Glasgow’s Golden Generation.

To guarantee your place we require:

  • a £25 Registration Fee

  • a commitment to raise a minimum sponsorship of £500

  • you must be of reasonable health and medical checks are required for those aged over 40

  • participants must be over 16 years old and those under 18 will require parent/guardian consent

  • participants must weigh less than 14st or be within your height weight ratio as strict weight restrictions apply and your jump could be cancelled

Skydives will be taking place throughout the year with the exception of winter (December, January and February) subject to change and new restrictions with regard to the current pandemic. While we will do our best to accommodate all bookings within a reasonable time frame we would ask for your patience and understanding at this time.
