Brantham Teddy Bear Parachute Jump
This year’s annual Teddy Bear Parachute Jump in aid of St Michael’s Church Brantham (CO11 1PZ) will take place on Saturday 29 June 2019 in the church grounds. Registration for Teddy Bear parachutists will open at 9:30am on the day with the first jump taking place at 9:45am.

The event, sponsored by Colchester and Clacton Solicitors Thompson Smith and Puxon (TSP) since the first Teddies jumped, has the brave Teddy Bears, sporting parachutes designed and made by their owners, launching from the top of the church tower.
