Our brave Skydivers

Posted by | Donations, Events, Uncategorized | No Comments

Huge congratulations to all our brave Skydivers, Helen, James, Maggie and Rory.

It was a little frosty and cold but lovely blue skies for great photos.

They raised a wonderful £2058 for us which is hugely appreciated.

As you know every penny makes such a difference to help us support all the families.

Here are a few photos from the day.

What?

Fundraising Zumba class by Suzanne

Read what she says:

Please come along and help me to raise some money for this local charity. It’s Good 2 Give does tremendous work in Ward 2 of Edinburgh Sick Kids to help bring the ‘extras’ that make a long hospital stay slightly less horrid for kids and parents alike. Now they also have the Ripple Retreat on Loch Venacher, a house where children and their families, from across Scotland, can go to be ‘normal’ and enjoy time together.

FANCY DRESS OPTIONAL!

How much and how to get tickets?

Tickets are £8, buy in class or email Suzanne on  hoppi@postmaster.co.uk for payment details via PayPal.

Charity Skydive

CHARITY SKYDIVE

Any daredevils fancy doing a skydive whilst fundraising for It’s Good 2 Give?

Tandem parachuting uses a dual harness,  you are securely attached to one of the fully qualified and experienced instructors who will guide you through the whole jump from the exit, through freefall, piloting the canopy and finally the landing.

Exiting the aircraft from up to 10,000ft above the ground, you’ll experience approximately 30 seconds of free-fall – diving through the air at up to 120 miles per hour – before the instructor deploys the parachute at around 5,000ft.

Our Charity Skydive will be on Saturday 29th September 2018 at Fife Airport, Glenrothes.

 

Requirements for being eligible to do the sky dive

– Maximum weight of 14 stone

– Minimum age 16 years (those 16-18 years need parental supervision)

– Minimum fundraising requirement of £500 which includes cost for the sky dive

 

If you would like to book a space please email carla@itsgood2give.co.uk

Be quick though as we only have a few places available.

Kiltwalk update

Posted by | Events, The Kiltwalk | No Comments

Dundee (19th August)
Edinburgh (16th September)

There is still time to sign up for either of the two upcoming Kiltwalks!
This is going to be the biggest Edinburgh Kiltwalk – in fact the biggest Kiltwalk that It’s Good 2 Give will have been part of!
It’s a very special one too, as one of the charity’s trustees, Joanna Lamb is leading out all three walks! (24miles, 15 miles and 5miles)
The Tom Hunter Foundation and Michelle Obama dinner have secured an extra 40% to give to the charity on top of your fundraising and it’s an amazing opportunity to raise as much money as we can for It’s Good 2 Give. This means that it is a really important fundraising opportunity for us and we are encouraging as many people to participate or volunteer at this event.  We have a pitstop at Silverknowes and need dozens of volunteers to help us on the day – Sunday 16th September.
We also need sponsors for our walkers and for treats for the walkers. If you could help or know a business who might be able to help point them our way! There is an opportunity for advertising on our tent too.

Summing up – what are we hoping for?

  • More walkers!
  • More volunteers to help at our pitstop
  • A business or businesses who might help provide treats (sweets, tablet, fudge,) for all the walkers who will walk by our pitstop
  • A business or businesses who might sponsor our tent.

If you can help with any of the above, we would LOVE to hear from you.
