Take on this exhilarating challenge of a lifetime and jump from heights of up to 10,000 ft to raise vital funds to support local people with life limiting illness!
During this exciting challenge you will freefall for approximately 30 seconds and travel at around 125mph before your tandem instructor will deploy the parachute at around 1 mile above ground.
At this point you can relax for around 5 minutes of tranquillity and take in the breath-taking view as you gently float back to the ground.
All skydives are completed in tandem with a fully qualified skydive instructor who looks after you from start to finish.
Raise £350 in sponsorship and you can jump for free!
Registration for this event is just £50 and we ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £350 in sponsorship. Of this £400 approximately £220 will come directly to Saint Francis Hospice and £180 will cover the cost of the skydive. Once minimum sponsorship of £350 has been reached participants will be given the option of a refund for their £50 registration fee, therefore making the jump free to the participant.
We need you!
Saint Francis Hospice has been greatly impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic and now needs your support more than ever before.
It costs approximately £12m to run Saint Francis Hospice for one year and we receive less than a quarter of this from the NHS. Your donations and sponsorship therefore keep the hospice running and enable us to provide support that the community so desperately needs. Your sponsorship of £400 could pay for 2 crisis clinical nurse specialist visits. Anything over £400 could contribute to the £606 that it costs for a day of care at our Hospice.
