Help support Cornwall Air Ambulance by fundraising and participating in exhilarating events this year.
Cornwall Air Ambulance flies to more than 800 emergencies every year, but to continue its life-saving work, the charity relies on ongoing support through fundraising and donations to continuously maintain and improve the service that it provides.
If you want to help support the Cornwall Air Ambulance and take on a new challenge this year, there are a variety of fundraising events to get involved with. 2020 will see Cornwall Air Ambulance supporters taking on ‘Snowdon by Night’, trekking through the Alps, bungee jumping and sky diving, all to raise funds for the charity.
‘Snowdon by Night’ will involve climbing the mountain in the dark with the moon as your backdrop. Summiting in the dark brings an even deeper sense of achievement to an already recognised charity trek, not to mention that seeing the sunrise across Snowdonia National Park will be a memory you will never forget, with the breathtaking mountain range opening up beneath you.
Or, if you want to experience a more advanced level of hiking, the 2020 Alps Trek will pass through the Mont Blanc region of the Alps, covering a distance of 46km over five days. Allowing you to walk across three countries in three days – France, Italy and Switzerland – this promises to be test of your endurance, alongside spectacular mountain views and beautiful glacier waterfalls.
If you want to experience an adrenaline rush that will make you feel more alive than ever, there’s also the option to fundraise for a 120ft bungee jump. Located on Cornwall’s north coast, the jump is situated at Porth Beach Caravan Park in Newquay, with jumps taking place on 4th and 5th July. Alternatively, if a 120ft drop isn’t enough, maybe a 10,000ft skydive from a plane will be more your style? The Cornish Parachute Club is located in Perranporth and introduces people to the thrills of skydiving over Cornwall’s stunning coastline.
From running to cycling, skydiving to trekking, there is a challenge out there for you. However, if you have your own challenge in mind – whether it’s walking the entire South West Coast Path or scuba diving with sharks to confront your biggest fear – simply get in touch with the fundraising team and they will provide you with the tools and support you need to make it happen. In short, you can contribute towards Cornwall Air Ambulance’s mission to save more time and more lives in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, whilst at the same time conquering your own personal challenge.
