VISITORS to the Jinney Ring Craft Centre this Sunday, October 6, will have the chance to ‘go fly a kite up in the atmosphere’.

The annual ‘Sky High Kite Fly’ is a family-friendly event which will raise funds for the Capstone Care Leavers Trust.

People can take along their own kite to fly or make their own on the day if they are feeling creative.

There will also be stunning displays from Midlands Kite Fliers experts, including a demonstration of Rokkaku, Japanese fighting kites and Amarinth, a 30-foot dragon kite.

Everyone is welcome to go and enjoy the great outdoors, from families and complete beginners to seasoned kite fliers.

The event has been approved by the Civil Aviation Authority for kite flying up to 500ft.

Entrance and parking are free but donations are invited towards this year’s nominated charity, the Capstone Care Leavers Trust.

The trust supports young people in England and Wales aged between 17 and 25 who have been in local authority care or children’s homes in their move into independent adult life.

Other attractions include a bouncy castle, have-a-go at archery with Droitwich Archery Society, and face painting.

Amanda Sunter froom the Jinney Ring Craft Centre said: “Our annual Kite Day is such a great day out for all the family and we’re delighted that this year’s event is supporting the work of such a fantastic charity.”
