Fancy doing a 160ft bungee jump in Hastings Old Town’s fishing quarter?

People will have a chance to do a 160ft bungee jump in Hastings Old Town this spring.

A crane will be set up at The Stade Open Space for the fund-raiser on Saturday, May 7 this year.

Proceeds from the event - called Bungee On The Beach - will go to St Michael’s Hospice in Upper Maze Hill, St Leonards.

A spokesperson for St Michael’s Hospice, which is organising the event, said it would be a “must for all thrill seekers and definitely one to tick off the bucket list.”

They added: “Feel the rush of the freefall and jump alone, or take on the challenge with a buddy and experience a tandem jump – it’s going to be epic! So why not jump to it and sign up in aid of the Hospice today? Visit www.stmichaelshospice.com/bungee

“A variety of charities have already signed up to join St Michael’s Hospice on the day, bringing with them their own team of jumpers to face this once in a lifetime adventure. The event is a great opportunity for charities to network and be part of an event which hasn’t taken place in Hastings for over 10 years, while raising vital funds for their cause.”
