Hospice Tandem Skydive Day Take the leap of faith with our Skydive Challenge in 2019! There are few things more thrilling than freefalling from 10,000 feet at 120mph. For 2019 we have teamed up with Skydive Tilstock so you can experience a tandem jump and fly through the skies just like your favourite comic book hero! Date: Saturday 20th July 2019 | Saturday 7th September 2019 It’s a truly unforgettable experience, and back on the ground, the money you raise will be used to fund our vital end of life care services and provide support for terminally ill individuals and their families. Start Your Skydive! Tandem Jump This is the easiest way to jump, a tandem dive is done in a dual harness so you are securely attached to a qualified instructor at all times. Because the instructor takes care of the important parts of the jump, such as opening the parachute and landing, you can just enjoy the exhilarating experience, and your preparation for the jump is usually only 30 minutes. What does it cost? Upon booking your skydive place you will need to pay a £50 non-refundable deposit. This amount is taken off the final jump cost. The remaining jump cost is £180 - but as long as you reach our minimum sponsorship target of £395, this is covered by the hospice. Alternatively, you may wish to pay for the entire jump cost yourself which means 100% of your sponsorship money will come to the hospice. Sponsorship This is such a daring challenge so we recommend setting yourself a target of £550 to help keep you motivated as you prepare for the jump. As a minimum we would ask you to raise £395. Sign-Up Today! When can you jump? Our next day will be Saturday 20th July 2019, which you can book below. If you'd prefer to take on the Skydive Challenge later in the year, we also have a day booked on Saturday 7th September, which you can also book below. Alternatively, you can jump on any other day of the year to suit you. Just email us with your preferred date and we can check availability with the skydive centre.
