Skydiving Sid with Peter ClarkeAll bears will jump from a 100 ft extending ladder provided and manned by West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service, Wakefield.

Soft toys other than bears can also jump

You might want to dress or distinguish your bear so that you can spot him as he floats down

Ideally those jumping should be between 10 cm and 30 cm tall. A little taller may be OK.

Parachutes will be supplied by the organisers

It would help the organisers if bears had labels pinned to them with their names, that of the owner and a mobile telephone number.

Data protection note: no personal details will be divulged to other parties

The Rotary Club of Wakefield can accept no responsibility for damage to bears or other soft toys

In the event of bad weather, breakdown or the need for the fire-fighters to leave the scene in an emergency there will be contingency arrangements and these will be published nearer to the time of the event. 

The Rotary Club of Wakefield and the press, will be taking photographs for publicity purposes. If anyone does not wish for their child's photograph to be taken under these circumstances please speak to the organisers on the day.


Bears need to arrive in good time for their requested slot to allow time for handing in sponsorship money and for parachutes to be attached

Sponsorship money and sponsorship forms need to be handed in before parachutes are attached

After landing all bears will be retrieved by the organisers and taken to the recovery tent for you to collect

There will be prizes for bears landing nearest the target

All bears or other entrants will receive a bravery certificate


It may be possible to accept entries on the day of the event if space is still available. No guarantee can be given of this or that a time slot of your choice will be free. We will do all we can to help. Entries on the day will be 5.
