Take to the skies in 2024 and raise vital funds for local people living with a terminal diagnosis, and their families.

Your Skydive:

For your tandem skydive, you’ll be in a dual harness and securely attached to a qualified instructor at all times. The instructor takes care of the important parts of the jump so you can simply enjoy the exhilarating experience. Your preparation for the jump is usually only 30 minutes.

Back on the ground, the money you raise will help fund our end of life care services, and provide support for patients and their families.

Who can Skydive?

Feeling daring enough to take on the jump? The minimum age is 16  – (parental consent needed for under 18s). All participants over the age of 60 will need a Medical Advice Form signed by a GP. Plus, they’ll need to meet with the instructor prior to the skydive to ensure they are safe to jump.

Please note there are some restrictions for participations to ensure your safety on the day:

  • Weight limit: 15 stone (*dependent on height – please check limits)
  • Height, Weight and BMI Limits: see here

The £50 deposit is non-refundable so make sure you fully read the Medical Information Form and Height, Weight and BMI Limits before registering for your skydive.

Should you require sign off from a doctor then please take the following Medical Advice Form to your GP to sign. Feel free to get in touch should you be unsure about anything and we will happily contact the airfield on your behalf.

Upon registering, you will need to pay a non-refundable deposit of £50, which is then taken off the final cost.

The hospice will use £180 from your £395 sponsorship money to cover the cost of the skydive. The remaining £165 (and any additional sponsorship you raise) will be used to support the delivery of our care and support services.
