Two Scottish Drag Queens are set to leap from a platform suspended 40ft above the dramatic Pass of Killiecrankie, as part of a charity bungee jump, and they are calling on more people to take part.
Two fierce Queens have already signed up to slay the epic challenge which has been organised in aid of Scottish charity, Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland.)
The brave and glamorous participants will take the leap on Sunday 5 June, coinciding with The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend, but Nadina Pish and Cherry West, are urging others to get involved in their fundraising celebrations.
Nadina said: “What better way to mark Queen Elizabeth’s long and proud reign of Britain than to throw all of our energy into an adrenaline fuelled bungee jump and highland swing to help this fabulous charity!
“So far, Cherry and I are taking part, but we’d love this to be biggest charity challenge of 2022, so I’m calling on all my friends, fellow Queens and all SBH Scotland’s supporters to join us in this FABULOUS extravaganza.
“SBH Scotland is an incredible organisation, doing great work, with little statutory support. Like lots of other charities the last two years have been devastating for the charity and it’s important that as many people as possible do what they can to help. So come on, let’s do it!.”
Lynsey Hamilton, Fundraising Manager at SBH Scotland, said: “We are incredibly grateful to have lovely, kind hearted people like Nadina and Cherry leading the way in encouraging others to register for this exciting event.
“This event will be our second big outdoor fundraising challenge of the year so we want people to register now to avoid disappointment – this will be a Jubilee Jump to remember!”

Funds raised by the participants of the bungee/swing jump event will go back into the charity which directly supports over 3,500 people affected by the lifelong disabilities of spina bifida and hydrocephalus. The organisation carries out vital services for those who need it most, including offering home support workers, financial advice, and group family sessions.
We are looking for people across Scotland to take part. You must register in advance. SBH Scotland’s Jubilee Bungee Jump and Highland Swing Challenge is open to everyone (aged 14 and over) and will take place on Sunday 5 June 2022 at the Pass of Killiecrankie, a dramatic gorge on the River Garry in Perth & Kinross.
