We are delighted to be hosting our annual Ascot Ladies' Luncheon on Friday 21st June 2024 at the Rayleigh Golf & Country Club, Hullbridge.

We look forward to seeing old friends - and to welcoming some new ladies - to our ever-popular luncheon once again.

As always, ladies are encouraged to dust off their best hats or fascinators and enter the spirit of a day at the races!

Tickets are £35 for a delicious two-course luncheon with tea and coffee, served in the luxurious surroundings of a private room overlooking the golf course at this exclusive club.

The BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified tandem instructor does all of the hard work for you, allowing you to enjoy the exhilarating feeling of flying through the clouds from over 10,000 feet at up to 120 mph! It is a truly unforgettable experience.

To reserve your place, simply register here 

Registration fee: £70.00 (Payable direct to Skyline on booking).

Minimum fundraising required: £450. If you reach this minimum fundraising target, you’ll get to jump for free (excluding registration fee).
