Red Devils Tandem Skydive

To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Normandy and the Battle of Arnhem, we are offering you the chance to skydive with the World famous Red Devils Army Parachute Display Team.

The Team, made up of serving members of The Parachute Regiment, are the Army’s official parachute display teams and can be seen at various events across the country throughout the year. Every member of the team has served a minimum of three years in a Parachute Regiment Battalion and has taken part in at least one operational tour of duty in either: Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Iraq and/or Afghanistan.

This year, we are inviting you to join us on 29 August 2019 in Salisbury for an experience like no other.

The jump itself will cost £300, but we are offering supporters the chance to pay just £100 towards the jump and we will cover the rest. All we ask in return is that you raise a minimum of £500 sponsorship* for the charity.

For more information, get in touch on secretary@supportourparas.org

Or book over the phone: 0845 60 888 44

*sponsorship target must be reached at least one month before you are due to jump, otherwise you may be required to pay your own jump fee.

The Roast Beef Club

We are delighted to have been chosen as The Roast Beef Club’s chosen charity again in 2019.

The Roast Beef Club was formed in 2008 when a group of friends came together to celebrate St George’s Day. Someone happened to have a cricket bat with a few signatures that they offered to auction and £500 was raised that day. This lunch, formed the basis of The Roast Beef Club’s fundraising events from then on.

Every year, to celebrate St George’s Day, The Roast Beef Club choose a military charity to support and the members come together to raise as much as possible for the charity of the year. In the last 10 years, they have raised over £1 million.

We are delighted to have been chosen by The Roast Beef Club to be the beneficiaries of their 2019 event and are looking forward to another great day.

Grandads of the Atlantic

On 12 December, the Grandads of the Atlantic set off on their World Record Attempt to cross the Atlantic as part of The Talisker Atlantic Challenge.

Peter and Neil, former Officers in The Parachute Regiment, set off on 12 December from La Gomera in a race that will see them cross the Atlantic ocean before finally arriving in Antigua to cross the finish line.

They are hoping to set a new World Record as the oldest pair to row across the Atlantic with a combined age of 123!

Our Grandads have taken on this epic challenge to raise money for three charities; Royal British Legion Industries, Dreams Come True and Support Our Paras. We are honoured to have been chosen and have enjoyed supporting them through their training journey towards the start line for the past year.

They have set themselves an ambitious fundraising target and have done incredibly well so far, but could still use your help. Please visit https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/GrandadsoftheAtlantic to wish them luck and support them on this amazing challenge.
