We’ve heard the best view of the cathedral is not from standing on Palace Green, but upside down, bouncing from a crane in an act of madness!

Happening on Monday 9th June 2014, our annual bungee jump is on of the best ways to celebrate the end of exams!

It's only £40 per person for individual jumps, or £35 per person for tandem jump, with a £40 fundraising target.

Sign up opens Monday 12th June on the Students' Union website here.

This year's suggested charities are:

AYME, COCO and RT Projects. You can also pick a charity of your own choice or the DUCK Allocations fund.



The Association of Young People with ME (AYME) is a UK charity that provides support for children and young people aged up to 26 who have ME/CFS. AYME is also here to help and support parents, carers and professionals in health, education and social care. AYME strive to be the voice of children and young people with ME/CFS, representing their members' best interests with the government, local authorities, health authorities and other professional organisations – as well as the press. This can mean involvement in research projects, acting as advisors, or actively lobbying on our members' behalf.


COCO is an international children’s charity based in Newcastle upon Tyne. COCO works with communities in remote regions overseas to alleviate the poverty preventing children’s education. We aim to understand the needs of each community we work with so that we can fund projects that benefit the whole community and allow them to find their own solutions to poverty. We empower people so that they can become financially independent and able to afford to send their children to school. Education is our primary goal but we realise this requires involvement from the whole community.

RT Projects:

RT Projects offers an extensive range of activities, such as painting, printmaking, photography, pottery, woodwork, needlecrafts, and many others. The service is provided for people in the local community with anxiety disorders, long term health conditions, carers, or people at risk of depression. R T Projects is located in Gilesgate and provides a genuinely valuable service to those who attend, providing a space to relax, make friends and learn new skills.
