Calling all thrill seekers, dare devils and adventurers. Are you ready to take on a charity challenge of a lifetime and wing walk to support local people living with terminal illnesses?
This summer, soar through the skies whilst helping local patients and their families live life as fully as possible, for the time they have left together.
Join us at Headcorn Aerodrome in Kent and take the ride of your life. With breathtaking 130mph top speeds and stunning views, nothing will bring you closer to the skies than a wing walk!
We have booked a special day just for you, so you can soar like a bird surrounded by other daredevils on Sunday 18 July 2021.
If this date doesn’t work for you, you can still take on this amazing challenge for Team St B’s. Just call or email the team and we can get you started.
You don’t need any experience; all training is provided on the day.
Registration fee: £50
Minimum sponsorship: £800
Whilst you’re clearly not fazed by much, we’re here for the whole of your wing walking journey, including:
Fundraising Pack: A guide to give your fundraising a kick start, full of ideas to inspire you!
JustGiving: The simplest way for your family, friends, and colleagues to sponsor you. See just how easy it is to set up a page!
Virtual Toolkit: Full of virtual ideas, so you can keep fundraising without even leaving home.
On the day, one of our team will be there to greet you. You may be feeling nervous and this is completely normal, we’ve found once you meet your fellow St B’s sky soarers those nerves will soon ease.
Event Info Hub: Full of information on how to prep for your wing walk and what to expect on the day.
Our friends at The Wing Walk Company have put in place special social distancing measures to make your challenge COVID-19 safe. Check out their website for all you need to know, including FAQ’s, COVID-19 safety measures, and Terms and Conditions.
For more information or to have a chat about wing walks, feel free to contact the Events Team anytime. We’d love to hear from you!
Thanks to support from thrill seekers like you, St Barnabas can be there for local people with serious illnesses who rely on our expert care. You can help ensure they’re looked after in the peace and tranquillity of the hospice. Or, if they wish, be cared for in the comfort of their own homes. You’ll also enable us to support their families for years to come, with bereavement counselling and opportunities to remember loved ones. Thank you.
