Skydive for St Wilfrid’s

An intoxicating thrill, a free-fall for 10,000ft in a tandem skydive with an expert instructor - what a rush and all for a great cause! Make it ...

Take the leap for local hospice care!

Take to the skies and experiences the intoxicating thrill of a 10,000ft skydive, at our next hospice skydive days at Headcorn Aerodrome. Your daredevil day will include a preparation training session, an experienced skydive instructor to jump in tandem with, and a dizzying ascent to 10,000ft before an exhilarating freefall into a parachute-controlled descent.

What the day consists of:

  • Training session to help prepare you for the jump
  • A dizzying ascent 10,000ft up into the air
  • An instructor to jump in tandem with you
  • A plunging rush of adrenaline and a parachute-controlled descent

How Does It Work?

A £50 deposit will be taken to secure your place and then a minimum of £500 will need to be raised in order to cover the cost of the jump (£260).

In return for raising a minimum amount, the costs of the training and flight are paid for out of the money you raise.  The rest of the money will go to St Wilfrid’s Hospice. The sponsorship can be paid before the jump or on the day (if offline donations).

Other dates available please email simon.cosham@stwhospice.org for more details.
