Good question:- the actual jump costs £240 (
) per person. The £400/person minimum target set by the charity would include this, meaning only £160 would go directly to the charity; however in our case we have paid £170 each for the jump, so all but £70 of the total will go to the charity.
Perhaps in future I should choose tasks that don't cost money and/or are valuable in themselves. The polar trips were very expensive in themselves, but they did generate much more in donations and charity exposure than I could have got by cleaning cars - that can't be said for this one.
