Wing Walk

Imagine the wind in your hair and adrenaline coursing through your body as you climb higher and higher, strapped to the roof of a plane! Imagine the sheer rush of excitement as you take on one of the world's most fearsome challenges!

Wing Walk challenge postponed:

We would like to make you aware that due to the most recent advice and guidelines from the Government regarding the Coronavirus (Covid-19), we have had to make the decision to postpone the Wing Walk challenge. Due to the uncertainty around the ongoing crisis, a new date will be confirmed shortly.

This event is organised through an external company who are closely monitoring all of their events to ensure the safety of their staff, guides and all participants. For those who have booked and paid a deposit, you should now have been contacted directly by one of Kirkwood’s Community Fundraisers.


Strapped to the wing of a plane, you'll complete a variety of exhilirating fly pasts and manouvers - the highlight being a dive from 500ft and a zoom climb, with a final RUN and BRAKE before landing!

If this sounds like your idea of a great time, why not take to the skies for Kirkwood this year?

In order to take part in the Wing Walk with Kirkwood, we ask you to pay a registration fee of £100 and raise a minimum sponsorship amount of £499. This amount covers the cost of the Wing Walk - and a minimum donation that will come to Kirkwood Hospice.

Please do not be put off by this amount - if you ask everybody you know to sponsor you, you will find you can quite easily raise the minimum sponsorship.

Every extra penny that you raise over the minimum sponsorship amount comes straight to Kirkwood Hospice and will further contribute to providing specialist palliative care to those in Kirklees.
