Harvey skydive
Skydive for Saint Francis Hospice

Are you after a hair-raising, adrenaline-fuelled challenge? Why not push the boundaries and take to the skies to support your local Hospice?

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. When you are all signed up set up your Just Giving page to start your fundraising. 


Take a 10,000ft leap like Jo did, to raise money for patients like her dad, John.


When John was diagnosed with terminal cancer, the Hospice stepped in to help, making sure he could focus on spending time with his family.


His daughter, Jo, says, "Even though he was dying and it was really sad, I felt blessed that we were able to say a proper goodbye.


"Saint Francis Hospice was fantastic. The services and support we received was unbelievable, the love warmth and care was something else!"

Registration fee

A £70 non-refundable fee is due when booking this event (paid directly to Skyline).

Sponsorship target

By signing up to take part you pledge to raise a minimum of £400.

Of your £400 sponsorship and £70 registration, approximately £210 will come directly to Saint Francis Hospice and £190 will cover the cost of the skydive.

Age limit

The minimum age for Tandem Skydiving is 16 (ages 16 and 17 will require parental consent). There is no upper age limit.

Weight restrictions

For safety reasons, the maximum weight limit for Tandem skydiving is strictly 16 stone (102kg) clothed with shoes. However, it should be noted anyone over 15 stone (95kg) clothed with shoes, will be asked to pay an extra £10 to cover the additional work load for the instructor. Reasonable height to weight ratios and levels of fitness also apply which please note, again for safety reasons, are a little more stringent for women weighing over 13 stone (83kg).


Skydiving is a weather dependant activity and there is always the possibility that we may not be able to jump on the date booked (due to factors such as high wind, rain or low cloud).

If the scheduled skydive is cancelled, Skyline will contact you in advance to organise an alternative date.
