PEMBROKE Dock will become a Mecca for adrenaline junkies once agin this Saturday, August 19, during the third Bungee off the Bridge fundraising event, where hardy souls brave the plunge from the Cleddau Bridge.

The UK Bungee Club event is one of only three chances to bungee off a bridge in the whole of the UK.

Bungee HQ will be at Hobbs Point, where there will be a live video link to the Cleddau Bridge, so that spectators can watch the expressions on their nearest and dearest faces as they have the experience of a lifetime.

There are still a few places left, which need to be booked online at Pembroke Dock Bungee off the Bridge is organised by volunteers from Pembroke Dock Town Team, who commissioned the UK’s most popular bungee club to put on Wales’ only chance to bungee jump off a bridge.

Many jumper from far and wide are raising money for charity, and ones to watch will include Alex Kirk from Boots Opticians jumping as a pink flamingo for the National Literacy Trust, Paula Musselwhite and Allison Fletcher from Haverfordwest who are doing a bungee jump, a sky dive and a ride on Oakwood’s Vertigo in 24 hours to raise money for the Wales Air Ambulance and Ward 10 Withybush, and David Herbert, a smallholder from Caerphilly aiming to break the Guinness World Record for the most eggs intact after a bungee jump.

Pembroke Dock’s local elected politicians are also getting involved – County Councillor Josh Beynon will be bungee jumping to raise money for a second cold cot at Glangwili Hospital, and County Councillor Paul Dowson is donating a jump to Jay Harding who is jumping blindfolded to raise money in memory of Bradley Lowery, a young football fan who recently died of children’s cancer.

Huge thanks go out to our main sponsors Gravells Kia Narberth, the Port of Milford Haven and Pembroke Dock Town Council, but as ever with Town Team events, a multitude of local businesses, big and small, are supporting the Bungee off the Bridge in a huge variety of ways.
