Bungee fundraisers leap for Norwood

29 July 2014

Brave fundraisers leapt off a giant crane tied to bungee ropes to raise money for Norwood, a leading Jewish charity that supports children and adults with learning disabilities and vulnerable families. The jump took place on Sunday next to London’s iconic O2 arena, with magnificent aerial views across the capital.

The group took the plunge after a nerve-wracking 160 feet ascent to the jump platform. Jennie Dallal, 25, overcame her fear of heights to make the sponsored jump with friends and family cheering her on, after single-handedly raising more than £1,000 for the charity.

Safely on the ground again, Jennie said: "I was nervous to begin with but now I’m really glad that I’ve done it and it was for such an amazing cause. It was wonderful to see all of London and I raised more than I ever thought I would."

Guy Azouri added: I really enjoyed the jump, especially knowing it could help a someone in need. It was an exciting thrill that I would choose to do again without a doubt, and would recommend to everyone out there – overcome your fear and go for it!"
