Fly like a bird to celebrate our 65th year Anniversary...

Celebrate our 65th year anniversary and get a unique view of Raystede by joining us on one of our gliding evenings

July will be 'Bird Month' at Raystede, so we are encouraging as many people as possible to take up our gliding challenge! You will get a unique view of our centre, as well as helping us celebrate our 65th year anniversary and raising vital funds for the animals in our care. 

The gliding will take place at the East Sussex Gliding Club opposite Raystede and will start from 6.p.m. There will be fully qualified instructors who will let you have a go on the controls. Once your flight has finished you can enjoy a celebratory drink in the bar.

If you'd like to sign up, we're asking for a £25 registration fee and the fundraising target is £50 per person. Our centre costs £6,000 a day to run, and all the money donated to Raystede will go directly to help our animals.

It would be fantastic to have you take up this exciting challenge for us. This is the link to sign up for the 6th July 2017 and this is the link to sign up for our gliding evening on the 13th July 2017. By signing up and joining us you will also have a temporary  membership where any additional flights will cost you £10 for the next 28 days. 

If you would like to join us on the Gliding Evening, you must be over 13 years old, not exceed 16 stone and must be no taller than 6 ft 2. We also suggest that you don't take part if you have any serious medical conditions or injuries that might result in a dangerous situation during the flight.

After taking part in the Raystede Gliding Evening last year, a supporter said, "What a great experience- loved it!" 

Places are limited, so if you would like to join us for a spot of gliding on a beautiful summer's evening, phone us on 01825 840747, email jcampbell@raystede.org, or sign up online.
