We are looking for people from all over the UK to make a sponsored parachute
jump on our behalf and in return we are willing to pay for it! You can choose
from 25 British Parachute Association approved centres and when you do it!
There are three different types of parachute jump for you to choose from:
10,000ft Tandem Skydive, 3,000ft Static Line Solo Jump or the Accelerated
Freefall Jump – 10,000ft solo but with two instructors by your side. We ask
you to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship money in order for you to jump for
free. In addition to this, every extra pound
that you raise over the minimum comes straight to the charity, so please try to
raise as much as you possibly can!
The event is arranged by professional events organisers Skyline who receive a
flat rate per jumper for organising the jumps for us. Skyline specialise in
organising fundraising events for charities .

me the opportunity to achieve an ambition, I just hope that it makes a
