Teddy Bear Parachute Challenge

Date: 27 June 2015
Time: 9:30am
Location: St Michael's Church, Church Lane, Brantham, Suffolk, CO11 1PZ

This year’s annual Teddy Bear Parachute Jump in aid of St Michael’s Church Brantham (CO11 1PZ) will take place on Saturday 27 June 2015 in the church grounds. Registration for teddy bear parachutists will open at 9:30am on the day with the first jump taking place at 9:45am.

The event, sponsored by Colchester and Clacton Solicitors Thompson Smith and Puxon (TSP) since the first teddies jumped, has the brave teddy bears, sporting parachutes designed and made by their owners, launching from the top of the church tower. Their descent to earth is timed, with the winner being the bear who remains airborne the longest. Ideally, owners will have made parachutes for their brave bears before arriving to jump but there will be a stall at the event for last minute parachute manufacture if needed!

It costs just £2 for a teddy bear to jump, and there are prizes of £50, £30 and £20 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd brave bear respectively.  Repeat jumps are just a £1, and if you have raised sponsorship for your teddy in aid of the church your bear can jump for free. Sponsorship forms can be collected from the back of the church. Refreshments will be on sale, so do please come along and support the church and the teddies on the day.
