Calling all thrill-seekers

Dare yourself to do something brave and raise money for Martlets by stepping out of the British Airways i360 pod into darkness, 450 feet above Brighton beach, on Saturday 30 March.

Perfect for thrill-seekers, the night-time i360 iDrop is an exhilarating sponsored challenge that will see you gliding down from the pod through the open air, whilst taking in amazing views of the coastline.

Open to anyone aged 14 or over; no previous experience is needed, just a sense of adventure and a head for heights.  All equipment will be provided and the trained staff at Wire and Sky will make sure you have a fantastic experience and are kept safe every step of the way.

Charlotte Bolton from our Events Team said, “If you are the kind of person who likes to challenge yourself then the Night i360 iDrop is definitely for you!

“It is a physical event, but it is something that anyone can do with a bit of bravery and lots of encouragement from their supporters!

“Our life-changing hospice care is only free thanks to the generosity of the people of Brighton & Hove.   So sign-up now, challenge yourself and really make a difference!”

Fundraiser Chris Spokes took on the iDrop last summer, “This forced me to tackle a life-long fear of heights.  Stepping backwards off the platform was one of the toughest things I’ve ever done.

“The event was brilliant and there was fantastic camaraderie.

“I’d definitely do it again and would encourage other people to take the plunge.  It will create amazing memories and support the important work undertaken by the Martlets team.”

It costs £50 to register for the iDrop and we are asking that everyone who takes part raises a minimum of £250 in sponsorship.
