The Covid-19 Mental Health Crisis
As we deal with the fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the U.K. is facing a mental health crisis.
There is increasing concern about the mental wellbeing of the nation as things such as isolation, loneliness and fear take a hold during lockdown. In England, the Centre for Mental Health has predicted that up to 10 million people – will need mental health support as a direct consequence of Covid-19, with 1.5 million of those expected to be children and young people under 18. And this means that our mental health charities, that have already had their income decimated throughout the last 12 months due to a lack of fundraising activities are under more pressure than ever!
We want to help. Skydiving is an activity that was able to continue to operate, with COVID-Secure measures in place, throughout the majority of 2020. And we’re calling on you, to sign up for a Tandem Skydive this new year, in support of one of the below charities, and help to raise some much needed funds to support the organisations on the front-line of this crisis.
Skydive for Free!
Not only could you do something incredible for an amazing cause, but if you raise the minimum sponsorship amount, you could have your skydive costs paid for you!
Once you’ve chosen the charity you’d like to fundraise for, find your nearest airfield, and simply complete your booking and raise your airfield’s minimum sponsorship amount – and your costs will be paid for you!
