Leeds Jewish Welfare Board aims to support people to lead independent and active lives. We can only achieve this by the generous support from our local community.

Your support keeps our doors open. The money you raise, the items you donate and the time you volunteer helps us to positively change the lives of people in our community; your neighbours, family, and friends. Your support makes a real difference every day.

NEW FOR 2020!

Are you brave enough to take on the ultimate challenge for LJWB? You will jump from a height of 10,000ft, free falling for 25 seconds and reaching speeds of up to 120mph! As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll take the plunge whilst over the North Sea, with a birds eye view of the breath-taking scenery of the Yorkshire Coast.

A tandem skydive allows you to enjoy an adrenaline-fuelled freefall harnessed to the front of a BPA-qualified instructor and you simply need a short 20 minute briefing beforehand as it is the instructor who opens and lands the parachute. If the visibility is good you can follow the coastline from Whitby, right down to the Humber Bridge and beyond.

The skydive will take place at:

East Leys Farm, Grindale,

Bridlington, East Yorkshire, YO16 4YB.

It will be the most exhilarating experience of your life!

Registration Fee – £49

Additional Minimum Sponsorship – £400

Please note minimum age is 16 (under 18s require parental consent on the day) and maximum weight to jump is 15 stone.

Contact us to register your interest.

 

NEW FOR 2020!

Situated in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park lie the iconic three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. We challenge you to walk all three peaks, a total of 24 miles in 12 hours!

Your first summit in the early morning will see you ascend 2,227 feet to the top of Pen-y-ghent, but there will be no hanging around, as you trek on through to midday and your second summit, Whernside, the highest peak at 2,415 feet.

Finally the afternoon will lead you on to your third and final summit, up 2,372 feet to the top of Ingleborough, with awe-inspiring views across the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park.

You can look forward to support from our team of highly trained mountain guides on the day.

You’ll leave with stories to tell of your amazing adventure and the friends you made along the way, safe in the knowledge that you’ve helped LJWB positively change the lives of people in your community.
