I have friends and family who are unable to participate in the Bungee, can they join me to celebrate after I have completed the jump
Yes, we encourage friends and family to come along to support you at the Riverside Museum.
What happens if the weather is bad?
We regularly monitor the weather forecast in the lead up to an event. Please dress weather appropriate and wear sensible footwear.
The Santa Bungee would only be cancelled in cases of extreme weather and in this instance participants would be notified as soon as possible. Participant safety is our primary concern and in the event of unsafe conditions the Bungee would be rescheduled.
How can I access any photos that are taken on the day?
Photographs may be taken throughout the event and used in future publications for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity. If you do not wish your image to be used, please identify yourself to the organisers on the day.
