The sky the limit for Razzamataz Carlisle!

The sky’s the limit for our charity fundraisers


A huge well done to our amazing team of students, staff and parents for taking part in our charity skydive. So far, the total amount raised is in the region of £5,000!

“I never really wanted to do a skydive but one of my students suggested it so I thought, why not,” says Debbie, Principal of Razzamataz Carlisle. “I wasn’t that worried initially but on the night before I couldn’t sleep and I really did feel scared. The day was wonderful, we had beautiful weather and there were actually professional skydivers performing on that day. Once they call your name everything happens very quickly and you realise there is no backing out of it! I was excited and scared all at the same time but it is an incredible experience to feel like you are flying and I just wanted to take it all in and savor the moment.”
